Earthbound Expeditions- Great, we will come back soon for Nepal trekking

We were a team of 3 ladies from Hong Kong and Taiwan. Thank you so much to Rajan, the boss of Earthbound Expeditions, for his quick response on emails. He recommended us to go trekking in "the heart of Annapurna" because the weather was too cold in December and for us, the beginners for long trekking. Yes, he was absolutely right. We built up great confidence on this trekking company. Another reason that we chose Earthbound Expeditions was that the prices they charged was quite reasonable. We did very enjoy the trekking. Speical thanks to our guide, Gopal Tamang, who is an experienced, caring and friendly guy. The whole arrangement for transportation, route, meals and lodge was satisfaction. We love Nepal and will come back soon. Without hesitation, EARTHBOUND EXPEDITION AGAIN!!!

Simply Amazing

When I embarked on my hiking trip to Nepal I was expecting to find a beautiful scenario, a fascinating landscape and perhaps some energetic vibe to bring back home with me... Well, that's been only the beginning as what made the trip even more special has been the enchanting and amazing service received throughout our journey thanks to Rajan and the Hearthbound Expeditions who meticulously planned every single venue, and our lovely guide Bharat and porter who looked after us on our trek of the Annapurna. I loved the all experience and I will definitely be back soon!

Fantastic trek

We have just completed a trek with Earthbound Expeditions and couldn't have been happier with the organization, arrangements, and in particular the help and support we received from the staff involved. As two 'mature' trekkers we were very grateful for the watchful eye that the Guide and porters kept on us, and the way they were ever there if we needed assistance. We would thoroughly recommend Earthbound to any other more mature folk who are contemplating doing a trek in Nepal. Furthermore, we were equally delighted with the service and help provided by Rajan and his office staff in the preparation for and subsequent winding up of our wonderful experience.

We'v just completes a 4 day trek in the Himalayas with our 4 children age 4,6,9 and 10. With the help of our very experienced guide and 3 porters, 2 to help carry the little ones, we had the most marvellous experience. A little bit challenging, but mot to much... Managable distances for the children, excellent organisation, loadsa playful interactions with our crew and locals.... What more do u want! With stunning views of Fishtail and the Annapurna range, we are all excited for our next trip to the Himalayas. Our 9-year old son even said he'll come to Everest basecamp with me when he is 16!!!! Better start saving now!!! We got great value for money, great budget mountain hotels( with wifi... If u need to get in touch with the outside world) great mountain food...

Annapurna Panorama Trek

I was trying to book a 5 day trip from out of Nepal and it is always quite overwhelming to choose from the many companies online offering tours to popular destinations. I had only a short time to browse and plan. So I chose a few operators and started to contact them via email. Rajan (the head of EE) was the quickest to respond. He was also always very helpful in tailoring the tour based on my interest and the number of days I can spend. In Kathmandu, Rajan himself greeted me and gave useful tips for the trek. After one day in Kathmandu, I head straight to the start of the trek from Pokhara where I met my guide, Namaraj. Friendly, respectful, experienced and knowledgeable about the area, I had a great time trekking with him. I would highly recommend arranging your trip through Earthbound Expeditions.

best service, best guide, best porter, best trek

since this was my first trek i was a bit nervous but the owner of the agency took a lot of time to explain to me how everything works and made me feel good from the start. on the bus ride to Pokhara our guide Shree was already with us and stood by our side from the beginning. he would almost read our minds with what we might want or need and then organize it for us (extra blankets, water refills, wake up service, he even helped serving the food). he was very attentive and was always thinking ahead. we took as many breaks as we needed and when a storm started he brought us to the guesthouse right in time. we felt in really good hands! also the porter Babu was super-helpful and caring and always smiling. even with 3 bags on his back he was looking for walking sticks for us and always made sure we have enough water. it was an amazing experience! thank you for everything, i miss you guys already!

Once in a lifetime experience

Earthbound was an incredible company to explore Kathmandu and the Annapurna region with. My guide, Rajan Neupane was a genuine, caring man who did his best to focus on my well being during our trek. He went out of his way to enhance the experience in the mountains while providing local knowledge of the region I otherwise would have missed out on. My experience wouldn’t be the same without him. I highly recommend visiting Nepal with Earthbound. Fantastic accommodations and quality service. If you can request Raj as your guide you are in for a treat. Looking forward to being back in Nepal.

Winter trek to Annapurna Region- Thank you Earthbound

Our trek to Poonhill during Christmas- New Year vacation was absolutely fabulous and what made our trip even better was the excellent staff and service provided by Earthbound Expedition. The colors of the snow-capped mountains were so magical. Our guide was very knowledgable and always kept our spirit high with his witty humor and positive attitude. We were provided with everything that was required in the remote mountain. I would definitely go with Earthbound again on my next trip.

What an Adventure!!!

If you EVER get the opportunity to visit Nepal, take it!!! I would come back in a heartbeat. Earthbound Expeditionsmade our first-time experience a trip of a lifetime. From accommodations, our guide and porters, the sights, the people, words cannot describe who phenomenally amazing our trip has been with this company. They do great works in the community, employing those who were significantly affected by the earthquake in 2015 and participating in charitable giving to schools and hospitals devastated as well. We did the Annapurna Panorama Trail which was a 4.5 day trek through various villages and stays in guesthouses. BE PREPARED FOR AN ADVENTURE!!! Those who enjoy hiking but do not do it often, this will be a challenge. The locals consider it one of the easier treks, however, it is all an individual's perception. I would consider myself physically fit, but it was still challenging. I will say, we had someone who had never hiked before and she was able to complete it with a smile on her face... so its not impossible la and there's no day like today to get out there and do it! Most of the guesthouses have WiFi you can pay for; however I enjoyed the break from technology and social media. Our adventure was a good introduction to Nepal. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone planning to visit someday. Earthbound Expeditions is fantastic! Also, we came before peak season, which was even more amazing. We were not crowded on the trails nor in the guesthouses, and we still saw the beauty of the mountains and country side... Never Ending Peace And Love, that is NEPAL.

One of the best expedition managers in Nepal

The best part about earthbound expeditions is the people, they have the best staff.. professional, well-trained, extremely friendly and affable. They immediately put you at ease. I did the Ghandruk trek. The various packages are well thought out and (I couldn’t believe it myself in the end) other than the initial payment I did not have to spend a single rupee from my pocket. Everything was taken care of. I loved the Eco Thamel resort. Shout out to Mr. Karan Chauhan, for coordinating my trip and his genuine promptness.

Annapurna Range is amazing

Had an amazing time trekking with Earthbound Expeditions in Nepal. The team is very professional and ensured our trekking experience in the Annapurna Range to be memorable. Our trekking guide Bishal Kulung Rai and porter Subash were the perfect team and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to have their own experience trekking throughout the Annapurna Range and surrounding regions of Nepal. Namaste 🙏🏻 PS suggest you brush up on your card skills, Bishal is a bit of card shark, he has a very good memory 😁
