We were in Nepal for a conference and wanted to organise a quick helicopter trip to Everest base camp. Bhandari managed to organise a heli trip with a very experienced heli crew up to Lukla, Hotel Everest View and to an advanced point near base camp. It was surreal having a cooked breakfast with an amazngly clear view of Everest and the surrounding peaks. It was a great experience for us and we throughly enjoyed ourselves. Bhandari also organised a quick half day tour to fill in our day in Kathmandu.
This was not one of his firms usual treks but he successfully met and exceeded our expectations. Highly recomemended.

I booked a trip to Chitwan National Park with Snowy Horizions. Mr. Bhandari helped us with our booking, and he was one of the most helpful and professional people that I have dealt with in this industry.
He was in constant contact with me through emails before the trip, giving me advice and help with transferring my deposit. He also sent me the visa form that I needed to enter Nepal, along with other helpful documents.
I was very very impressed with the hotel and guide that Snowy Horizons booked for us at Chitwan National Park. It turned out to be the best part of our holiday. The hotel was beautiful and clean. The guide, Bishnu, absolutely made the trip - he was incredibly knowledgable about the wildlife, and he made sure that everything was on time and ran smoothly. I cannot describe how much he went out of his way to make sure that our trip went perfectly.
I was initially very worried about booking a trip through a travel agency in Nepal over the internet, but it turned out to be one of the best decisions that we made.
Thank you Bhandari and Snowy Horizons!

I would like to highly recommend Snowy Horizons to anyone who wants to book a trek or peak climb and be assured of fantastic service. I have recently returned from summiting Mt Manaslu and Snowy Horizon organised the 8 day trek in, the basecamp and climb and the 5 day trek out. I have no complaints only great praise.
After receiving a reply to my original enquiry quicker than any other company, I felt I could trust Mr. Bhandari (the owner) and I wasn't dissapointed.
All the support staff were amazing, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and proffessional. Indra the chef worked hard to give us great variety so the food never became boring, Mingma the sirdar kept us informed and briefed on itinaries so I was comfortable on what we were doing at all times. The Sherpa's were the hero's especially Lakpa who guided me to the summit, giving me space to be independant but always closeby for encouragment and support.
One of the reasons I booked with Snowy Horizon is that Bhandari promises one Sherpa to one climber, and this allows greater flexibility and safety. This works as many of our group were different abilities and you can go at your own pace for both acclimatization and when your actually walking/climbing.
Its difficult to know which company to go with when there are so many advertising their services, I took the decision of booking with Bhandari and made the right choice. He works hard and is very committed to making everyones holiday the best.
Thank you Snowy Horizon for organising the best service for me so that i could realise my dream of summiting an 8000m peak.''

Snowy Horizon Treks and Expedition is our partner of choice when organizing our trips in the Himalayas. We have worked with Snowy Horizon Treks and Expedition on two occasions - spring and autumn of 2011 in Shishapangma South face and Cho-Oyu normal route. we found the services, staff and overall dealing with the management as being highly professional and very accommodating. This is the reason we decided to have Snowy Horizon Treks and Expedition as our logistics partner for any of our Nepal, India, Bhutan expeditions and trips. SHTE is a Nepali owned and operated company we highly recommend!

Snowy Horizon has provided an outstanding and complete service on my first 8000 Himalaya climb to Cho Oyu (summitted 1 Oct). This was my first solo expedition ever and I was a bit apprehensive, but Snowy Horizon Team have truly taken care of all aspects of my trip, so I could fully focus on the climbing. Starting with a very personal airport welcome, with great lodging in Thamel, Kathmandu, good transport and most importantly an experienced Sherpa support from Pema, who was an amazing climbing partner and support. His no-nonsense approach, good technical and physical preparation let me stand atop my first eighthousander with a true sense of security and pride. Likewise, for the basecamp service - just amazing: a mushroom pizza and cherry-topped cake after the summit at 5700meters was truly a delight. I look forward to use the support of Mr. Bhandari and Team when planning for my next goal: to climb Everest before I'm 40!

I recently traveled on a trip to Everest Base Camp and Island Peak with Snowy Horizon Treks and Expeditions and was extremely impressed with their logistics and attention to detail. Even during some of the worst weather in years in Nepal, our trip was great, in no small part to the guides, porters and leaders at Snowy Horizon Treks. They are true professionals, not to mention genuinly honest and great people, who provide a service that is second to none. If you travel with them, you will not be disappointed.

Snowy Horizon est une agence bien implantée en plus d'être des gens agréables et de travailler avec des guides de qualité.
Bandari a su répondre avec rapidité et le plus de clarté possible à nos questions et nos attentes. En outre, sur place, ils ont su se montrer réactifs lorsque nous avons demandé des modifications, c'est une qualité que nous avons apprécié.

Snowy Horizon was contracted by my climbing team this fall. I climbed and use Snowy Horizon Service in Shishapangma Expedition and Yala and Naya Kanga peak. The whole crew worked extremely diligent on the mountain, did every job at their best effort and the highest quality. After the climbing trip, for some reason, I had to stay in Nepal alone for several days and had a lot of trouble with visa and airlines. Bhandari and his team went out of their way to help me sort out the mess. They took good care of me during those days, made me feel home that I almost didn't want to leave!

I planned to climb Naya Kanga Peak in March and Snowy Horizon helped me a lot - I got a great guide who has done an impressive List of ascents of high mountains. He was a real fighter when it came to struggle against a hell lot of snow - yet we had to give in before reaching the High Camp. Anyway, this hasn't been the fault of anybody involved. I had a good time, felt safe and secure and can recommend Snowy Horizon to anybody who looks for a challenge in Nepal.

We have been Travelling Nepal already 2 times for climbing Ama dablam and Lhotse Expedition in Year 2004 and 2007. We used Snowy Horizon Expedition for Pumori Expedition. We went with some international and local companies before we found Bhandari of Snowy Horizon Manager in 2009. Comparing to all companies that I used before 2004, the quality service level, commitments and Price, we found Snowy Horizon Treks are first class and very satisfied with professional & experienced crews. All the services from Arrival day to Final departure were really wonderful.
We also compared the cost and service with other companies, but the package offer by other companies has not included all in details which we can get everything from Snowy horizon Treks.
Bhandari and his Company team is best choice for fast to reply all necessary trip arrangements, important information’s with detailed travel plans. We are really impressed with his personality and commutation so simply and clearly.
We would like to suggest all Climbers, Please use Snowy Horizon treks and take much benefit in your Nepal mission. If someone has planned to go Nepal just Contact with Mr. bhandari and solve your all kind of problems for your mission. We fully recommend this company for anyone. No doubt, your holiday with this company will be unforgettable of your lifetime journey. Bhandari we would like to thank you so much for making all things happen well during my trip.
All the best wishes to your family and business! With Best regards,

Climbing Lobuche East peak with Snowy Horizon was a great adventure! We've been welcomed by Hari who was very helpful. Everything was well set up. Our guide did his job as we expected and he was well experienced, well professional and funny! Bhandari was always answering to our multiple emails in a really fast time! Our porters took a good care of our duffle bags. Next time we go back to Nepal, we will go with Snowy again. Due to altitude sickness, we had to change our itinerary, and it hasn't been complicated at all.
The only thing we would have liked to know before buying our flight tickets are the holidays. Our shopping day in Kathmandu was a Holiday so most of the shops were closed. But we found some opened anyway. Thanks Snowy Horizon!

I did Everest Base Camp Trek and Island Peak Climb, a 21 day trek to Everest Base Camp, elevation 17,598 feet / 5,364 meters, and a climb of Imja Tse, better known as Island Peak, elevation 20,305 feet / 6,189m.
The trek was a wonderful adventure. Each day of trekking was inspiring, being surrounded by the spectacular views, and magnificent mountain peaks.
Snowy Horizon’s Guides, Sherpa’, porters where very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They helped make my trip a wonderful experience.
Snowy Horizon’s director, Mr. Bhandari, was efficient and very helpful in organizing all the details of my trip. Bhandari ensured that my trip requests where fulfilled and the trip was tailored exactly to my needs. I would highly recommend Snowy Horizon Treks & Expedition!!

It was a long time ago when me and my friends had a lively conversation about Himalaya mountains and Nepal resulting in decision to go and explore the roof of the world ourselves. Last year I started to search plane tickets for Kathmandu and a company which could provide all service there. As usually I asked Mother Google for activities in Nepal and she found for me the Snowy Horizon. Lucky us! We had three weeks of amazing adventures! Trekking arround Annapurna, getting over Thorung La (5416m) pass, cycling downhill from Muktinath to Beni, I got one leach sucked on my leg, extreme rafting in Trisuli, and relaxing three days at Chitwan National park Island Jungle resort. Awesome. This trip needs to be repeated! So we are very grateful to Bhandari and his team for this unforgettable trip, for chance to see Nepal, climb mountains, meet wonderful people face to face. How touching to see the local kids putting their small dirty palms together and greeting travelers: Namaste! I found that Nepal is Never Ending Peace And Love for me. It`s true.
From the bottom of my heart I recommend everyone who wants to see the real beauty of the Himalaya mountains and Nepal to rely on Snowy Horizon team for the most unforgettable experience.
See You in next time!

"When our group of 12 friends including 9 doctors decided to visit Tibet, we were lucky to find the 'Snowy Horizon Treks & Expeditions' travel agency while searching the internet. We visited Tibet - Kailas, Mansarovar, Lhasa & Everest Basecamp in September 2011 through this agency and from our experience, we can whole-heartedly recommend them for anyone planning a trip or trek in Nepal or Tibet."
Snowy Horizon Treks & Expeditions & from our experience, we can whole-heartedly recommend This travel agency for anyone planning a trip or trek in Nepal or Tibet. The Managing Director of the agency, Mr.Bhandari is a sterling tour manager. From the time We first got in touch with him for preliminary inquiries and right through the actual trip he was always Very prompt in providing information, suggesting alternatives & solving problems as they cropped up. He is friendly, very helpful, has a hands-on management style & a positive attitude which is an asset In this business. He even sorted out satisfactorily some issues created by our recalcitrant Tibetan guide
even though they involved some financial loss to him & he is very accommodating in money matters.
The arrangements that he made for our trip - the support staff, the food, the accommodation arrangements Etc were more than satisfactory. The guide Hari, cook Phurba Sherpa, Tenzing Sherpa were all efficient, cheerful, always willing to help & served up delicious hot meals throughout the trip even while Working out of a kitchen tent at 16800'.
'Snowy Horizons' is a fine example of friendly, efficient & helpful tour management provided at a very reasonable price & we highly recommend them to all prospective travelers to Nepal / Tibet."

"We liked so much Nepal, that we have been there two times (October 2010 and April-May 2011). Even if we made independent trekking in Everest and Langtang-Gosainkund areas, both times Snowy Horizon Treks helped us with a lot of formalities : plane and bus tickets, hotel reservation, private transportation, telephone cards and other very important things. We had a very good communication and understanding with Mr. Bhandari and his staff, and we are very satisfied with the services they offered to us. So we strongly recommend Snowy Horizon.

We found Snowy Horizon treks and expedition by Google search: treks and expedition in Nepal and they had arranged our trip in Kailash Mansarover and beautiful city pokharaTour! This is our first trip in Kailash Tibet and maybe we are the first Jordanian group who did Kailash mansarover Tour. We are very happy with Mr. Bhandari and his professional service more than we expected.Our Nepali Guide Bibek pandey and Snowy Horizon Kitchen staff is very experience and cooked every day different and delicious food for us. We have get 24 hours hot and cold drinks with other facilities.
We know how hard it is to choose someone to organize your tour when you haven't met them or experienced their work. Although we did not have a lot of time in Kathmandu we found Mr Bhandari a very capable person and had our best interests at heart. Thank you for all the arrangement from Snowy Horizon Treks did with a happy time. We had wonderful time in both countries. We absolutely enjoyed our Trip. Our guide, driver and all the services you provided was great. So that we would like to strongly recommend Snowy Horizon Trekking Company.
