Excellent service and great value for money - do not hesitate to book your trip with Earthbound Expeditions!

From our first enquiry, Rajan at Earthbound Expeditions was nothing but helpful, responding to emails promptly and advising on an itinerary for us. From the minute we arrived in Nepal we were well taken care of – we were picked up then settled into the Thamel EcoResort, where all the staff were helpful and friendly and they put on a great breakfast buffet! We started off on the Poonhill Trek which was beautiful and our guide Gopal was brilliant, making sure we had the rooms with the best views, advising on the best eating and drinking options – all around attentive from start to finish. He was also incredibly caring always checking we were okay and even helping us down some of the steep and icy paths! As two women travelling alone, he made us feel very much at ease and we would not hesitate in recommending him to other women travellers. For the second part of our trip we had intended to go to the Everest region but unfortunately on the morning we were due to fly to Lukla we had to change our plans as my mum was experiencing some symptoms of altitude sickness from our first trek. Even though it was such short notice Rajan was able to change our flights to the following day to allow another rest day in Kathmandu and the chance to go to the doctors. In the end she was advised not to return to altitude, so Rajan cancelled the flight and rebooked us onto a Mountain Flight so we would still get the chance to see Everest. Rajan and Gopal then came up with a new trek for us to do in the Kathmandu Valley. Once again Gopal catered to our every need on this beautiful trek through traditional countryside with wonderful panoramic views of the mountains, and unlike the Annapurna trek we hardly encountered any other tourists which was great! We were so impressed with Earthbound Expeditions and the way nothing was ever too much trouble, Rajan completely rearranged our itinerary at short notice and for no extra cost – he even accompanied us to dinner on our final night! I cannot speak more highly of Rajan and the excellent way he treats his customers - please do not hesitate to book a trip with Earthbound Expeditions!

“Wonderful Nepal trek”

After some vigorous vetting through the Lonely Planet Website – Earthbound Expeditions stood out far and above on what they offered in value, their itinerary and what was included. Along with this, Rajan was happy to tailor our trip to our needs. Due to time constraints, we booked the Ghorepani trek which would give us the opportunity to also see some of Kathmandu & Pokhara. Rajan and his team didn’t disappoint - From the initial Airport pick up, welcome phone call and also welcome meeting, we knew that all our needs would be met. Accommodation in Kathmandu and Pokhara was booked in advance for us and was of perfect standard. As was the pre-arranged flight to Pokhara which ran on schedule. The Kathmandu sightseeing tour included in our itinerary was fantastic! – Visiting 4 different sights it was very educational. The guide was extremely informative and the day itself was breath-taking – I would highly recommend. The trek itself was truly remarkable and we decided to take up accommodation at the teahouse lodges. Our guide and porter were very attentive going beyond their call of duty. Food was filling and tasty and we were always left with them us asking if we were satisfied. Gopal was our guide and a pleasure to spend time with. The porter too was very helpful and always cheerful. Again, the trek was flexible in how much distance we wanted to cover and which villages we preferred to stay in. Gopal was great in finding the best rooms with a view and the best tea houses for comfort. The trip finished with a Nepalese evening and dinner with Rajan. It was a nice gesture and end to our trip. We will be back!

Annapurna trek

We did the 4 Day/3 Night Annapurna Trek through Earthbound Expeditions. It was a great experience and we were super impressed with the level of professionalism by our trek guide! He was very friendly, resourceful and encouraging! We had organized the trip from NZ and initially were skeptical about the legitimacy of it all. But I must say we were pleasantly surprised. They were thorough right from the communication, organization of transport (flights, buses), accommodation and the trek itself. The trek could be done by yourself (as per some of the below comments) but if it is your first time, I would recommend these guys!! P.S. Trek guide Arjun Adhikari and sherpa Kaajee made the trek awesome!

Annapurna Trekking

I and a friend visited Nepal for a few weeks towards the latter end of 2014, and it turned out to be the best holiday of my life. Everything was spot on, the food was great, the accommodation was great, the scenery incredible! However, all of this pales in comparison to the hospitality of everyone we met. The whole trip was perfected by our guide, Thakur Sapkota. He was hugely helpful and informative, hilarious and an all-round nice guy. Thank you for a wonderful experience Tiger!

Fantastic Experience

Trekking in the Himalya was everything I'd hoped it would be and more! We booked up our trip through Groupon and the organisation, accomodation, service and communications from Earthbound Expeditions were great. Any question I emailed Tarek was swiftly answered and we had no problem booking an extra night at the hotel in Kathmandu to sightsee before the start of the tour. During the trek our friends were taken ill and our guide did everything he could to help, arranging ponies to transport them from one lodge to the next, complete with porter and guide, and rearranging accommodation so they traveled a shorter distance. The guides, porters and staff at the various accommodation places could not have been friendlier or provided a better service. Even though there was a fuel shortage during our time there, we were still able to take part in all our planned activities. I would thoroughly recommend Earthbound Expeditions to anyone wanting to visit Kathmandu, Pokhara and trek in the Himalya.

Amazing Experience

My wife and I went to Nepal for my 40th birthday and couldn’t have been happier with our experience with Earthbound. We had some flight issues out of the US and Earthbound didn’t miss a beat, rearranging our Kathmandu activities so we didn’t miss out on any major sights. Our trek in Annapurna was amazing. Our guide Narayan and porter Madan were so helpful, patient, and fun! They anticipated our every need and kept our spirits high when the trail was steep. They made sure we had the best food, the best rooms, and we're experts on the local sights. They treated us as family. Our entire trip was seamlessly organized. We never wondered what would happen next and ALL of the drivers and guides were professional and kind. It is obvious that Earthbound takes pride in sharing Nepal with visitors. Stop researching and just email them - they will take it from there!
