Our values 

However, along with authenticity the company also emphasizes four (4) core values that help us deliver our goals: :

1.    Value for Money:

You Grow When You Give

Strong believers of the above statement, we use our assets and knowledge to help our communities, which have in return given us fascinating culture and warm hospitality.

Firstly, our hiring policy focuses on providing employment opportunities to the local community, giving adequate training so that they can transfer this knowledge to their own networks. This has helped many people associated with our organization to improve their lives, to feel empowered and capable to educate the people around them as well.

We believe sowing the seeds of knowledge can be transferred for generations. This is a sentiment that has been carried on to other social projects we have conducted, from providing locals with health camps and awareness programs, to free medical treatment and education.

A young tourism entrepreneur, Rajan today is the president of the company.
As an ambitious man, Rajan started his professional career working in a hotel as front desk assistant. But his interest, vision and ambition led him to take trekking guide training and work as a trekking guide. He led many trips to different parts of Himalayas and after three years of working as a guide he started his own trekking company, Earthbound Expeditions. As a hard working man, he dedicated his time to bring his company to a high level service provider and eventually became successful in doing so. But this success didn’t come to him in a flash of magic wand. He went through a lot of hardships in the initial days. There were lots of challenges to overcome, obstacles to be crossed but with his strong will power he managed to go over all those difficulties and now in todays date his company, Earthbound Expeditions, has a very highly reputable name in the tourism industry. His company serves around 2500 people a year to travel to Nepal, India, Bhutan  Tibet and other south-east Asian countries in the most outstanding way possible. His dream, vision and hardworking nature established him in the market as a successful travel entrepreneur.
