The story begins as a dream born in the midst of the mighty Himalayas. The year was 2007 and Krishna Bahadur Gurung (better known to his friends as Kishan) saw a need to reach out to families, young trekkers as well as older visitors who wanted to experience the incredible beauty of the mountains but maybe couldn’t do the long, extensive treks.
Having over 20 years experience in tourism and trekking, he knew that there was such a strong need to reach out to such visitors and no one was pursuing it. With this understanding, he opened Swiss Nepal Family Trekking & Expedition. With that dream came a new element in the area of trekking and tourism in Nepal.
Since 2007, SNF Trekking & Expedition has grown beyond just family trekking. Kishan and his dedicated staff have pioneered new trekking areas as well as developed specialty trekking trips to meet the needs of his clients. They offer incredible trips into remote locations that few other companies will serve. But in all of this, they have never forgotten their roots with families and trekkers new to the mountains of Nepal.
Today, they serve visitors with destinations of not only Nepal, but also Tibet, Sikkim, Darjeeling, Bhutan, India and Bangladesh. The company has primarily grown through clients who become friends and bring repeat business. In fact, today, the vast majority of Swiss Nepal Family Trekking & Expedition’s customers are clients who return often as well as recommending its service to their friends.
