“Thousands of years of history and culture on one stunning island”

“Thousands of years of history and culture on one stunning island”

Sri Lanka was our fourth trip arranged by Earthbound Expeditions to us.We travelled Nepal, Bhutan earlier. We have always been pleased with the professional, friendly and prompt attention provided by Rajan, president of the company. He has been very helpful in customizing trips to suit our needs and always selects good guides and drivers.
There are many things to do in Sri Lanka. We especially enjoyed exploring the historical sites that had once been capitals of the country. Hiking to and exploring Buddhist pilgrimage sites such as Sigiriya fortress, Mihinthale and Dambulla Rock Cave Temple were also highlights of the trip. Visually the island extends from coastal beaches to cool lush green hills where large tea plantation hills are located.

Dear all who are considering Kailash – Mansarovar tour

Dear all who are considering Kailash -Mansarovar tour
I understand that you and friends are considering a trip to Mount Kailash. I wish you the best of travels and assure you that the memories of this sacred place will stay with you always. In year 2000, an old friend and I had the pleasure of having Rajan Simkhada and Earthbound Expeditions expedite our sojourn from Simikot in western Nepal to Kailash and back. Our trip entailed several things out of the ordinary which only happened through the help of Rajan.

Our small group of 2 was below the minimum allowed by the Chinese government and required special permits to be issued. We, as geologists and pilgrims wanted to walk the whole route and depart from the road to see the western shore or Raksas Tal Lake. Typically, the Chinese have people ride in a jeep from the border to the mountain and back. After long haggling, we were assigned a jeep but allowed to walk the whole way, a compromise that Rajan obtained for us.

At the time of our trip, the Limi Valley along the border in Nepal was off limits to travelers but Rajan negotiated permission from our Nepalese liaison officer to traverse the valley. Besides the thousand and one small things that Rajan handled, often without our being aware, he very persuasively obtained seats for us on a plane out of Simikot for our return to Kathmandu and saved us a 3-4 day wait in Simikot (he stayed behind and brought our luggage to Kathmandu several days later on the next flight out).

Rajan is a very adept young man. Having transitioned from a remote village to Kathmandu, Rajan is well known throughout Nepal for his work in television and is the driving force behind Earthbound Expeditions. As a devote religious man, he was the perfect travel companion and friend to share in this sacred space.

I encourage you to make the trip to Kailash and I wish you the best of travels. If you decide to use Rajan’s and Earthbound’s services you will not be disappointed. I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.

This trip was a dream come truth

This trip was a dream come truth. 8 months ago I read this book of Michel Peissel, which make me dream about an unknown area in the north of Nepal, belonging to the Tibetan culture. The landscapes went beyond all expectation it looked shaped by human’s hands. It’s diversity in shapes and colors transported me another planet.

Regarding the culture, It was very refreshing, different from all what I have seen in Nepal. The Tiji festival showed me there was still a place where the Tibetan Buddhism remains unmolested and practiced with fervor. And all this lops as wearing traditional dresses were very authentic. It’s a pity that it seems the new generation is more attracted by Nike pullovers, Reebok Caps, Chinese shoes.

Concerning the organization, I found it very well, even if I was feeling little bit confuse to have so many people working for me. I’m usually used to a budget way of traveling, of doing everything by myself and these everything was prepared, cooked for me. Embarrassing and agreeable in the same time.
