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.
