“Trek to Everest Base Camp”

Excellent Trek to Everest Base Camp

My wife and I and our 26 year old daughter did a private Everest Base camp trek with Earthbound Expeditions in April this year. The trip was 18 days, with two nights in Kathmandu before and after the trek. This gave us time to take a tour of Kathmandu and to get over our jet lag before starting the trek. We arranged the trip via email with Rajan Simkhada. He was always timely in responding and answering all questions. The trip was great, and we loved our guide Maule Tamang. He was very experienced (he has been to base camp over 100 times and has even summited Everest). He flew with us out of Kathmandu, and back at the end of the trek. He looked after all our needs. The two porters we had did an excellent job, and our belongings were always waiting for us when we arrived at the teahouses. The teahouses were very basic, and we were grateful that we had sleeping bags. The extra time on the trek allowed us to acclimatize to the elevation. We had minimal symptoms of altitude sickness. While trekking we were never rushed by Maule. The extra time after the trek allowed us to not worry about potential flight delays out of Lukla (it wasn’t). It also gave us time to relax in Kathmandu (we got a massage) and take a half day tour to Bhaktapur. We highly recommend Earthbound Expeditions, and you will be lucky if you get Maule Tamang as your guide.

“Annapurna Circuit Trek Nepal”

Great Annapurna Circuit Trek Nepal

It has been a very pleasant trek experience in Nepal. I found Earthbound Expeditions on Lonely Planet among a list of other trekking companies. I decided to join them due to their excellent reviews. Resham, trekking guide is so professional and friendly, he took a good care of us along the way. Shivaraj and Amrit are very friendly and without them, I wouldn’t be able to make it to Throung-la pass. I would definitely recommend Earthbound Expeditions to my family and friends. I believe I will be back to Nepal some day.

“ Everest Base Camp trek Nepal”

“ Everest Base Camp trek Nepal”

We recently travelled with Earthbound Expeditions on an Everest Base Camp trek. The organisation of the trip was superb from the time we first made our enquiry until the moment we left Kathmandu to fly home. Rajan answered our emails quickly and his responses to our questions before our trip were great and put our minds to rest about problems we thought we might encounter. When we arrived in Kathmandu our driver was waiting with our name clearly shown which was a great relief as Kathmandu airport is a bit overwhelming after a long flight. We were quickly taken to our hotel (Thamel Eco resort) where we were given a warm welcome and quickly taken to our rooms. 

The flight from Katmandu to Lukla was delayed because of poor visibility and eventually cancelled until the next day. Our guide Namaraj, arranged for our transport back to the hotel and we were given our original rooms back for the night. Next day the flight was again delayed but Nama managed to get some of us on a plane and the rest onto a helicopter to make sure we could start our trek without any further delay. He really deserved his tip just for these efforts alone as after we arrived in Lukla all flights were again cancelled.

The rest of the EBC trek was superb as were the porters that we had waiting for our arrival in Lukla. Everyone was very friendly in the tea houses that we stayed in and the food was great considering where we were. Eventually after 8 hard days we made it to EBC, all made possible by the crew that looked after us day and night. Don’t underestimate the effects from the altitude and follow what the guide tells you to do, and drink lots of water.

On arrival back in Katmandu we met Rajan again and were taken to a cultural evening. Our guide also joined us on a night which will be remembered for a long time, superb food, drink and entertainment. We were a group of 7 and everyone had the same opinion. If going to Nepal again we would not hesitate to book with Earthbound Expeditions. Contact Rajan for help advice and you will not be disappointed.

“wonderful experience – Nepal and Bhutan tour”

Dear Rajan,
Myself and Desirey recently completed a tour with you and I am writing to express my gratitude for a wonderful experience we have in our Nepal and Bhutan tour. 

Earthbound Expeditions did a wonderful job planing the our Nepal and Bhutan trip. Before travel, we received promptly any necessary information and answers to our queries. For our short vacation time the trip was well laid out giving us the opportunity to experience the sights of Kathmandu city and the rural side of Kathmandu valley – Nagarkot, as well as ample free time to shop, explore and relax. The drivers and tour guide were very friendly, knowledgeable and available to offer any extra service needed. The hotel  Themel Eco resort and restaurants were a pleasant surprise. From the minute we landed in Nepal till we left we had a very smooth experience due to Earthbound Expeditions and the services of Rajan. I would highly recommend their services as a tour company to anyone planning to explore Nepal and Bhutan. Nothing was too much trouble and they provided a smooth and extremely enjoyable vacation.

Please feel free to post this review to your website or trip advisor, signing my name.

Thanks a million for a wonderful vacation, we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Best wishes
