Comments by: From Cicilia landao and her friend ( Italy ) -who booked our 17 days Kailash-Manasarovar Tour in 2002.
Mr. Rajan Simkhada of Earthbound Expeditions asked me about references so I can explain my experience in Tibet with his trekking organization.
Last year we (me and my friend Paola) asked to Earthbound Expedition about the possibility to arrange a Kailash Tour even if we was two girl only. So in October 2002 we start for our pilgrimage. The guide assistance was very useful from the first day because Qatar airways lost our luggage and Mister Mahendra Simkhada help us to complain with airport staff and he write for us a letter to Qatar airways to claim compensation.
The legs of the tour were share out very well, we have days of rest near the Tibetan border and before to start Kailash Kora, useful to reduce altitude effects.
When we traveled in Tibet we have with us two Nepali and a Tibetan guide and two very very skilled car drivers.
The nepali guides, Dibash and Ganga, made our trip easier: every day they prepared the camp or they assist us in the guest house. During the trek they were very professional, suggesting us when to walk, when to rest, they often checked our respiratory problem and with his assiduous presence we has been able to reach the Dolma- la pass without using Yak. But a welcome surprise was to taste the specialty that every day our cook prepared for us: momo, spaghetti, cake and pizza too!! (Italian people enjoy food).
I hope you could understand how I love my Kailash tour, if I can help you, ask me please.
Best regards, Namaste

Comments by: Clarinda Ho, From City U Hong Kong who organized 14 days 25 students adventure trip in 2002
We are the students of the City University of Hong Kong, and also the committees of the Travelling Club. Last year, we have organized a 15 days trip to Nepal on 21/ 05 to 14/ 06 with 25 people, which is a successful trip with a smooth arrangement from the Earthbound Expeditions Company in Nepal.
We all have a great time and an unforgettable memory in this Oversea Tour and Rajan Simkhada, as our Nepal guide brought us a lot of fun and Nepal’s culture to our members. Here, we would like to give a million thanks to him, as to thank for the special time he had given to us in Nepal.
And in November 2002, Rajan had come to our university to give a Travel Talk on Nepal and Tibet to our students. This gives a great opportunity to more of our students to explore Nepal and Tibet, which proved that Rajan is an experienced guide and care about every small matters.
As now, we have also recommended to other Hong Kong universities as based on the great experiences that Earthbound Expedition and Rajan own in the past years. And we would also like to thank Rajan to give this wonderful trip to our members. Regards,

Comments by: Joe and friends, Hong Kong Feb 2002 about Jomsom Trail Trek
Hi Ganga and Rajan,
It's a long time since my Nepal trekking trip sorry for replying so late, because after the Nepal trip, I have planned and visited Northeast China for a skiing and hunting trip with friends, and then busy with my work for the recent weeks. The Nepal trip is certainly a wonderful trip for me, especially the trekking section.
Thanks again to all of you. I have highly recommended Earthbound along my friends, and some of them may also want to visit Nepal later. Anyway, I am also interested in coming Nepal again, and if time is possible, I'll choose to climb to Mera Peak. Yes, I don't forget photos. I will send all photos having Ganga & Ashok to your company address later. If you have time to visit Hong Kong (again), don't forget to call me! I'll show you the beautiful scenery of Hong Kong countryside. Hope we can greet with each other again!

"If you would expect lots of complaints from a group of six girls who're going for their first trekking trip, you'd be surprised – there's not a single one! from the initial planning up to the time of our departure, we're being well taken care of. Our tour guide, Rajan, is highly professional, attentive, friendly and helpful! Thanks also to our great porters – Ganga, Gopal and Ram. Without their help, we could hardly finish (or even start!) our trip. I will not consider agencies other then Earthbound, if I plan to visit Nepal again. Well Done"
With Earthbound, you don't have run around!
Well, with Rajan, mind that you'll be playing around, Oops, I mean Rajan's service are sound !!!
