Rajan had arranged everything very well!

Dear All
Rajan asked me if I want to tell you about our experience to you. I hope you don’t mind.
My dad (61 years) and I (37) visited Nepal in October this year, it was our first time in Nepal. We were looking for a trekking agency in April.

This is my comment about our trek and tour in Italian language

Hi Rajan,
This is my comment about our trek and tour in Italian language. Thank you again
Comment:”la professionalita’, la disponibilita’ e la simpatia di rajan e dei suoi collaboratori meritano una menzione particolare. Grazie alla Earthbound expeditions, un viaggio che puo’ risultare difficile da organizzare con poco tempo a disposizione, e’ diventato realta’.

18 giorni spesi bene…dall’annapurna trek all’affascinante Lhasa tutto attraverso paesaggi mozzafiato ed una popolazione veramente speciale, sia nepalese che tibetana. Essenziale un discreto spirito di adattamento per le prime notti in Tibet ma sicuramente ben ripagato da cio’ che si presenta davanti agli occhi.
per qualsiasi consiglio scrivetemi pure a icci@inwind.it – namastè.

It was completely hassle free

Dear Rajan,
With this e-mail we would like to thank you for the good organization of our trek to the Annapurna Base Camp from 4th – 16th November 2005. We enjoyed it ever so much; you provided us with a reliable and good guide( Narendra and a nice porter, Arjun), who looked after us from the beginning to the end.

It was completely hassle free, we never had to worry about anything, just enjoy the walking, the nature and the view of the mountains. Even the weather was clear! (how did you do that?). We are definitely thinking of coming back to Nepal in the future, and perhaps bring some friends along. Meanwhile, we wish you all the best, and hope to meet again.

Thank you for your excellent, efficient and courteous service

Dear Rajan, Namaste!
Thank you for your excellent, efficient and courteous service in my recent trek to Langtang / Gosinkunda / Helambu in October / November 2005. It was a one-person trek with one guide / porter Kabi. He was very knowledgeable and is to be commanded.

In the planning stages by e-mail, you stressed the need of possible flexibility to take into consideration local circumentences weather, illness, etc. This certainly worked well for me and made my experience that much more enjoyable. If any of your prospective client would like to contact me by e-mail regarding a recommendation for your trekking company I would happy to respond. Thank you again !

We had a wonderful time

Dear Rajan
Namaste and greetings from the USA!
We are terribly sad to be home and our minds and hearts are still in Nepal. We had a wonderful time and cannot thank you enough for all your helpful planning to make our trip so great!
I think we are both dreaming of our last dinner with you and I have come to discover only one Nepalese restaurant in all of New York City but we are excited to try! We don’t imagine that it will be nearly as nice (nor as festive) as the Nepali Chulo but all the same, we’re glad there is one!
Have not gone through the pictures yet, but when we do, we will be sure to send you a few! Will send a message to Dibash ( our guide) as well, but please let him know we are awaiting instructions for preparing the tea we bought!

Please keep in touch as well look forward to continuing our talk with you!

Cheers and all the best,

I had many interesting encounters

Dear Rajan and other staffs in Earthbound Expedition,

This is Megha. I came back to my home on 11th safely. After that, I visited my parents’ home and I stayed in their house more than one week. I could not send e-mail till now, because my parents do not have a computer in their house. The journey to Mt. Kailash and Lhasa tour was so great. And I had many interesting encounters while my staying in Nepal. My travel this time was fruitful. On the day I left Nepal, the car came to pick me up at my hotel just on time.

Thank you very much for everything you took care of me. My flight to Japan was good. In Japan, the rainy season finished a few days after my coming back to Japan, and it is so hot every day now. The highest temperature of the day is about 34 – 36 in my city. How is it in Kathmandu now? Does the rainy season in Kathmandu continue till August? Please be careful of your health. I really hope to see you again. Namaste!

You and all involved people did a very good job

Dear Rajan
Thank you for you mail. Am terribly late with answering. My life is running faster than I can at the moment. As you know I have started the new radio job, next to my normal job. It is good fun, but a lot of work.

I want to thank you again for your good organization and the work you have done for our Nepal and Tibet tour group. The entire 13 group members were very satisfied and went home with good memories. We were very lucky with a guide like Surendra. You and all involved people did a very good job. Thank you !

We will have an unforgettable memory of the trip

Dear readers,
I am Andrea, the tour leader of an Italian / Swiss group of 8 people who had a great luck this year, enjoying a 15 days Mustang trek and Ti Ji ( Tenchi) from April 28-May 13th , 2005 with Earthbound Expeditions, and sharing this great experience with Mr. Rajan Simkhada, who was our leader on that trip.

Plus, we spent some more days in Kathmandu, before and after the trek, visiting the most important places in the valley, always with his helpful presence. Well, since when I began organizing the trip, I had a very good impression of Rajan and the agency, as I asked so many questions to him, about itinerary, organization, schedules, everything. That is usually exhausting for many people, not for him who was very efficient in fast answers, always helpful and so precise that just before the beginning I had quite a good idea of how the journey could be.

But it wasn’t exactly as I thought because, despite of my high expectations, the journey went far over those expectations: this is not only my opinion, it’s the opinion of everybody in the group: the perfect tour. Just in making the itinerary he showed me his experience, as I could realize later. In fact nobody in the group suffered for altitude sickness or for tiredness, and I am pretty sure (I have quite a good experience in high altitude trips) that it wasn’t just “good luck”, because the different stages were studied very well, to give to all of us the time for getting acclimatized, and improve our shape day by day.

Rajan came with us as a guide, this was an impression plus, and he deserves a special thank for that, because he dedicated to us part of the precious time of his busy schedule; plus, with his presence and the one of the second guide , we had great traveling companions and we shared many special moments together. We could dedicate time enjoying the visit of the so many interesting gompas that Mustang offers, full of history and culture, and Rajan was so great in being a guide and translator; well, he has a good experience of the area, and this helped very much in having an incredible time, enjoying what better Mustang can offer, out of the beaten tracks too.

The time spent in Lo Manthang for the Ti Ji Festival (held there every year in May) was really amazing, showing us how beautiful and interesting could be a Buddhist festival; moreover, we had the opportunity to meet the King of Mustang, always thanks to Rajan.

The cook (Mr. Mingmar) and his staff were simply wonderful: in such difficult “conditions”, with such that shortage of time to cook (considering the fact that they were on trekking too, with the tiredness that this involves): every day we had different hot meals, most of them freshly prepared: we had momos (made by hand just before the meal), spaghetti, pasta, wonderful pizza and cakes (both made without having an oven!!), many typical dishes, vegetables, meat, rice, potatoes, French fries (in a simple word, everything, like we were in Kathmandu and not inside the mountains, far from the beaten roads).

Please do consider (just to explain how good and how much was the food) that despite the about 180 kms of trek, many people of the group were “worried” about gaining weight. Plus we had hot beverages many times per day and hot water anytime we required it. All the equipment provided for the tour was perfect (tents, mattresses). The staff was always helpful and very eager to please, in any small matter regarding anybody of us, helping us for washing, preparing tents for the night, boiling water. So, I use this opportunity to thank Rajan again, for everything. We will have an unforgettable memory of the trip; the landscapes of Mustang are simply amazing, plus the culture, the people met during the tour, and the great, really great organization of Earthbound Expeditions as an impressive plus.

For sure I will use their services in the future, in my treks in Nepal and around (Tibet, Kailash Ladakh), where he has a great experience too. Namaste to everybody!
