“Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

I have been using Snowy Horizon to provide me the needed service on now three 8000-meter expeditions. I am very satisfied with first of all, the office staff's quick and thorough responding to all enquiries and secondly, having all the arrangements done as they've been discussed.

All expeditions have been operated accordingly and precisely matching intended programs and itineraries. Good, new gear at base camps. Good and plentiful food. Fluent and continuos communication between office and expedition crew has always given feeling of being safe and looked after.

Very happy about pricing as well given the quality of service. Nepal is not always an easy place to travel. Will continue using Snowy Horizon for future expeditions too.

“ABC Trek through Snowy Horizon Treks & Expedition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

The Annapurna Base Camp trip has been one for my books and Snowy Horizon has been a part of this achievement. I just want to extend my heartfelt thanks to you for organizing this trip for us - from the hotels, to the porters, to the trekking fees and permits, airport transfers, and our board and lodging. Your service has been excellent.

I do apologize if there was any inconvenience caused on your end with the hotels but hope that I can continue to book my future Nepal treks with you. I will not hesitate to recommend your services to future travelers.

“EBC, Gokyo+ChoLa, + Lobuche East Peak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

EXCELLENT service by Snowy Horizons! Extremely professional service from Rishi, both in Kathmandu and in efficient email responses in the booking and lead up. Upon request, Snowy Horizons were able to provide everything I required on my trip, particularly for the climb up Lobuche East.
My guide, Lakpa Sherpa, was wonderful and incredibly experienced in trekking and climbing. My porter, Subaz, also did a great job. Both also provided great company to me over the 18days in the Himalayas.
I experienced severe altitude issues at 5500m and so Snowy Horizons and I, together, made the decision to descend and not continue to Lobuche East. Safety-first is the golden rule, as it should be! The situation was dealt with very efficiently by my guide on the mountain and by Rishi over the phone.
I would recommend Snowy Horizons to anyone wishing to experience the Himalayas, on any level, be it trekking or climbing. No issues whatsoever with anyone employed. They all always strived to offer the best service possible. I hope to return to the region some day and will definitely go back to Snowy Horizons!
Thank you so much for such an incredible and forever memorable experience!

“Kathmandu Mountain Biking Trek”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Having never travelled to Nepal I was a little nervous about how the trip would all turn out. Whether the accomodation would be good, if my guide would be friendly, and the general logistics of of the itinerary. After touching down and finding the driver, who took me to the hotel for th night, I felt comfortable and never felt the need to worry about what is going to happen next. Everything was planned out to the tee, so much so that on the 3rd day of the trek I was able to choose a route depending on how tired I was feeling. The guide that was provided was very knowledgeable and fun - he kept me entertained for the 3 days and always had a smile on his face. The hotel that they put me up in for the first and last night was a nice welcome and a much needed cleanse for the respective days. When it came to the trek itself, the first night was spent in a lovely house with warm staff and an unbeatable view that I was sad to leave on the second morning. For the second night I was put up in a more traditional teahouse, which was great compared to the descriptions I've heard from other people who have used teahouses on treks. The food was very tasty and I was always offered more at each of the night spots. They even took me and another person, who had just finished her 15 day trek, for a nice meal on my last night in Nepal to say thank you and to ask how everything went.

All in all, I would definitely recommend using Snowy Horizon as they will take care of eveything and do all they can to make it the best experience possible. I'm sure when I get some time off I'll be contacting Rishi for another adventure.
