"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."
