We went on the EBC trek this October with Earthbound Expeditions and it was Great!!! All written here on TA is absolutely correct! Rajan took care of us in every possible way. We sat with him and with our porter/guide (see below) a day before starting the trek and we got all the guidance, information and tips we needed. Rajan was very vey patient with us, even that I sent him about 20 emails before arriving to Kathmandu. Rajan also reimburses us, immediately, no question asked, when we didn't use 2 flight tickets he already purchases for us. Rajan assign to us the greatest porter/guide we could ask, his name is *Hary Nepal* (who works at Rajan's Earthbound Expeditions) , remember that name because I would like also like to take this opportunity to highly recommend Mr Hary Nepal. Hary go on the EBC more than 20 times and the Annapurna circuit more than 40 times - he his a pro! very kind and the most modest person, you will not here a ward about money. Hary took care of us on the trek make sure that we will be happy he is an amazing guy, let me just say it like this: if you go to Nepal - go with Earthbound Expeditions, and do yourself a favor, ask rajan to assign you Hary nepal as porter/guide! It was Hary, just as the view and scenery, that made it a once in a lifetime journey for us.
I would like to thank Mr. Rajan of Earthbound Expeditions for arranging a very well organized trip for me and my friends to Everest Base Camp and Kala Pathar in Nepal. It was a dream trip for me and Mr. Rajan's team made it memorable and comfortable for all of us. Our guide Mr. Sriram Adhikari was very nice and an experienced hiker who has climbed many peaks and been to EBC numerous times, he made our whole trek and journey comfortable and enjoyable. They took good care of us for arranging the best room in every lodge/tea house we stayed, took care of all of our daily needs concerning food, water etc. Never felt that we were left on our own to manage things. I would highly recommend Earthbound Expeditions for trekking in Nepal and looking forward to my next trip to Mansarovar with Earthbound Expeditions.
Amazing journey to Everest Base Camp because of Earthbound!
My trekking partner, Kathy Warren and myself planned our trip to EBC about a year ago to celebrate our 50th birthdays. We were recommended to Earthbound by a friend of Kathy's. From the moment we signed up for the trip until the minute we were droped at the airport for our return trip home, earthbound took great care of us. The cost was extremly reasonable especially given the service we recieved. It was a once in a lifetime trip and I believe alot has to do with how we were taken care of. From the pick-up at the airport, our tour of Katmandu, our guide, Bharat whom we made a life-long friend with, everyday on the trail was a special experience. The owner of the company, Rajan, was there to answer all our questions, he even skyped with us before the trip. He is a special individual who is giving back his country through funding of schools and employing many local, talented individuals in his company. I would pick earthbound for any of our trips to Nepal. If you have any questions , I would be happy to share more of my experience. Thank you again to Rajan and the earthbound team for an unforgetable experience. Ruth Ann Ahnen USA
Everest base camp trek
What an experience, Rajan and the team were amazing. Our guide Apar looked after us every step of the way ensuring that if anything could be done to make our holiday better then it was done. This is a very professional company and offers service at the very highest level and I would recommend them to anyone who is wanting to trek in Nepal, thank you so many guys for giving our team the experience of a life time and it was very much appreciated.
Everest Base camp
We have just returned from a wonderful trekking vacation in the Himalayas booked through Earthbound Expeditions.We cannot say enough about how happy we have been with this company. The initial communication at booking with Tarek was excellent. All our emails were answered within 24 hours and we received regular updates prior to our trip. Rajan runs Earthbound very professionally with the top priority to make sure that everyone is well taken care of. During the trek our guide did an awesome job, organizing meals and accommodations and watching out to make sure everyone was OK every day. His very positive attitude was great to have around. Our porters did a wonderful job, always helpful and happy to assist. This has been a very memorable trip and we hope to be able to return again in the future for another trek. We will definitely look to Earthbound Expeditions to make this happen and we highly recommend them to anyone considering a trip to Nepal.
rajan of earthbound expeditions is the best
If you are thinking of doing something out of the ordinary, THIS IS IT!!! Just like you, I found Earthbound Expeditions (EE) through the internet and chose them based on all the positive reviews. I haven't written any review in my whole life but I'm doing this because the world out there deserve the best of what Nepal has to offer through the warmth and expertise of the people from Earthbound Expeditions. Even if you are not sure of what you want or where exactly you want to go, the first thing you have to do is go to their website and get in touch (email is the fastest) with Mr. Rajan Simkhada right away. He is the president of Earthbound Expeditions and he will help by giving you an idea of what's best for you based on your time and budget. My friend, Jennifer, and I just finished trekking to Everest Base Camp (EBC). Our guide, Resham, and our porter, Bal, were extraordinary. They provided us with the kind of service that's way beyond our expectation. (Check out Jennifer's review on April 24, 2014). For me, March is the perfect time to go because there were other trekkers but not enough to make it like a circus. I treasured the solemnity that the trails had to offer. Also, the weather was just right. Warm enough so as not to feel like we were freezing (down jacket is important + gloves and head cover will help) but cold enough so that the yak dung on the trail didn't stink. When you are ready to go, the most important thing you have to bring with you is your diamox (to prevent altitude sickness) and your used hiking boots. The rest (I mean, everything else that you will need for the trek, I'm serious!) you can buy at Thamel, good quality for an incredible price. Spending money in Nepal is also a good way to give back to the people who go out of their way to to make your stay a pleasant one. Pack lightly. When I was reading the reviews before my trip, I won't believe what they said about wearing the same clothes for days and not taking a shower. It's true. My socks smelled fresh like they were taken out of the dryer. It was crazy!!! I brought a lot of baby wipes and felt fresh everyday. Next is water. I got Steripen from Costco before my trip and it served us (including our guide and porter) well until the end of our trek. I gave my Steripen to my guide after the trek. (Actually, I left a lot of my stuff with our guide and porter, including water bottles, sleeping bag liner, trekking poles, shirts, a lot of food, etc.) There is bottled water available if budget is not an issue. But you have to remember that everything, yes, everything up there was carried on the backs of either the porters or the animals. Which reminds me to tell you not to bring too much food. We did, which just resulted in excess baggage. All you need to bring are snack items because breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided during the trek. I became a vegetarian during the trek to avoid digestive problems. (We didn't have any.) Bring your camera, it's a photographer's paradise. There is internet almost all the way to EBC. You can also charge your phone, camera, etc for a small price. Buying my power bank was useless. And last but the most important of all, get travel insurance. Despite all the preparations, I caught the flu 3 days before flying to Kathmandu. But still, I made it to Kala Patthar (KP) and the original EBC. I was coughing and my lungs were not strong enough and succumbed to High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) two days after submitting KP. When you are in a very bad situation, you want to have Rajan Simkhada in your corner. One text message to him and the helicopter was on its way to pick us up in Lobuche. Despite 2 days in the hospital in Kathmandu, I believe that this trip will remain on top of all trips. Anyway, for me, the best part of traveling are those that are not part of the itinerary. Six weeks after coming back from Nepal, every now and then, my mind still drifts back to those magical mountains in the Himalayas and the bustling streets of Kathmandu. May you have a safe and fun trip.
A wonderful trekking trip to Everest Base Camp
In the aftermath of the April 2015 earth quack, I deiced to visit Nepal. Then I thought I might try trekking to the Everest Base Camp. I wanted to use a local trekking company and after doing internet searches, found the Earthbound Expeditions. An exchange of e-mails started in September 2015 with Rajan. He provided detailed information, a list of items to take and also answered my questions promptly. On reaching Kathmandu on 16 November, I was met by a representative of the company, who took me to a hotel. After meeting Kedar on the following day, I was taken on a sightseeing tour of the city. This was very enjoyable. In the evening, I met my Shyam - my guide for the journey. The day after we flew to Lukla, met my ported Prem and stiff for trekking. It was sunshine with clear skies most of the days. We were surrounded by mountains and the scenery was breathtakingly beautiful. Walking along the river, crossing suspension bridges to get to the guest houses perched on hills and meeting fellow travelers is an experience that will remain with me for a very long time. Accommodation used along the route was very good. The guide and the porter were very helpful. The service received from the company exceeded my expectations. I would certainly use them again. I have no hesitation at all in recommending Earthbound Expeditions.
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 visability and eventually cancelled until the next day. Our guide Namar, 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 Namar 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.
The most amazing trek to Everest Base Camp! Stunning!
I've just returned from and incredible trip to Kathmandu and trek to Everest Base Camp. It was simply stunning! I was a solo traveller who tagged onto a group of 11 other trekkers. The Thamel Eco Resort was fabulous. A cute little boutique hotel only a street back from the main road yet so peaceful and quiet. Very clean and well presented. All the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help with my stay. I used Earthbound Expeditions from a recommendation from a friend and I wasn't disappointed! Right from the get go everyone was so welcoming and I felt I was looked after really well. Especial being a single girl on my first visit to Nepal. Rajan, Arjun and Bibek (our tour leader and guides, respectively) were amazing! So patient with all of us, as at one point or another we all had aches, pains, sickness and suffered from the effects of the altitude, and not once did any of them make me feel like a was slowing the group down. They really looked after us all and cared about my well being, offering me certain foods to help with nausea and Diamox to help with the altitude, which they supplied. All done with a constant smile on their faces! Such a lovely team. As for the trek it's self.... Incredible! Beautiful scenery, stunning views and those peaks! Wow! ???? I couldn't have asked for a more magical trip, caring staff and friendly group. Despite it being overcast and drizzly for most of the trip (just the time of year) we were treated to glimpses of Everest and were surrounded by towering peaks. The most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. Accommodation is clean and dry, very warm in the main lounge and simple, 2 single bedrooms with shared washing facilities. The accommodation gets a little more basic the higher you climb but that's to be expected. Especially when you see that everything is walked up from Lukla! Toilet rolls and bottles of water included! Simply amazing, herculean effort by all the Sherpa people! A truly wonderful trek! Thank you Earthbound Expeditions for an amazing adventure, new friends and memories to last a lifetime! Jessica
