Very well organised by Snowy Horizons......The hangar is a few steps from where the Local flight lands, and the whole thing was very competently run. I took the 1 hour flight, with my Russian pilot, and had a simply superb flight on a perfect day. Wonderful, wonderful experience.

I found Rishi and his company searching the internet and I was very lucky to find them! Even though we wanted to travel thru Nepal on "our own" (not as an organized trip), I called Rishi to book our air to Lukla and other areas....he was also helpful in booking hotels, assisted with our permits. He skyped with me alot and payments were super easy, efficient and safe. Overall he treated our "little two person tour' as important as a large group, had a private driver meet us, introduce us to the area, assisted us in every way the entire time in Kathmandu and Lukla. Then the airport closed for a week at Lukla, his partner SHIMAH at the Everest Lodge was able to expedite us out via helicopter so we could continue our vacation in Nepal without losing any time. He got us a refund from the plane that was cancelled and the helicopter ride was one of the highights. His staff and service is amazing....THANKS FOR THE BEST TRIP EVER!!!!!!!!!!

I have just returned from Nepal with Snowy Horizon. I cannot speak highly enough of this trek/climbing organizer. From the outset, Rishi Bhandari was most professional in answering all of my questions from the UK. On arrival I was warmly greeted and located a climbing guide of considerable experience....two time summiter of Everest.

Both my guide and porter were extremely helpful and competent and could not have done more for me during our three weeks together. All accommodaion, meals and general organization were sound and any additional expenses incurred by me were explained beforehand.

The hotel arranged for me in Kathmandu was appropriate. I cannot recommend this company highly enough. Very good value for money. Try it!

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 everything, Kathmandu, 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 Rishi (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 Rishi 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 acclimatisation 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 Rishi 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.
