Wonderful! Caring and adaptable to suit individual requests

We used Earthbound Expeditions in Sep 2010. The entire trip was fantastic! Rajan and his team were caring and always ready to assist us in anything we required or were unsure of. We travelled in both Kathmandu staying in a lovely hotel the Samsara, then had an amazing guide that trekked with us through the Himalaya mountains - all thanks to Rajan and his team at Earthbound Expeditions. I always felt safe, and trouble-free. Rajan phoned daily when we were up the mountain - checking we were all OK & happy - which we always were! We left the Himalayas one day early (as we were super fast walkers), Rajan and our Guide adapted to this with no worries. Allowing us to change hotels easily & stay an extra night in Kathmandu - not every company would do this. Thank you for making it so easy. We were then treated to a live culture show & traditional meal back in Kathmandu which was delicious. I would definitly use this company again if ever back in Nepal!

Everest Panoramic Trek with EarthBound Expeditions

An excellent well-organized trip, thanks very much to Shree our guide and our 2 porters who were excellent!!! I Highly recommend this trek and go with Earthbound for a hassle-free experience. You can buy bottle water and snacks throughout the trek from numerous little 'tea houses' along the route. Take a bunch of little toys and sweets for the kids you meet on the trek!

Excellent Nepal trek

It was a well-organized trip and our group was quite small so it didn't feel like we were on a coach party trip into the Himalayas. Our guide, Nabin, and porters Gukul, Kul, and Chirping were extremely friendly and helpful. They took good care of us and gave us good advice on food/altitude sickness, what hills we were looking at, local plants, culture etc. Still need to be convinced of the positive effect of garlic soup. Its good to support a local business that employs locals and looks after them well. Views of the Himalayas were fantastic. I'd recommend Earthbound Expeditions.

The best agency to organise your trip around the Himalayas

I chose Earthbound expeditions after I read the reviews in Trip Advisor. When you are traveling to remote places like the Himalayas you need to be sure that you choose the right agency and we definitely did it! Since the beginning, Rajan treat us very nicely and professionally, the price was by far the best price that we could get and the service exceed our expectations. You cannot go wrong with this agency, give it a try and you will enjoy the Himalayas 100%. Mygma, our guide, was a very experienced and customer oriented person, he spoke english very well and he was always open to do some changes to our itinerary. The car (Land Cruiser) was in perfect condition and we did not have a problem whatsoever. I do not hesitate to recommend the services provided by Earthbound, they are professional, customer oriented and experienced in what they do. I hope this review help someone to organise their holidays. All the best Juan Caraza

Fantastic Trekking Company - Everest panorama Trek March 2012

Earthbound Expeditions is a professional, well-organised trekking company with the bonus that it is run and managed by locals. Our primary goal was to reach Everest Base Camp and Maule our guide was exceptional and extremely warm and friendly. His experience and knowledge showed as he was able to take us up and down safely with adequate acclimitazation to prevent altitude sickness. His local knowledge was also excellent and this added to the enjoyment of the trek. A word about our porter Dhukpa, should also be said - like Maule he was exceptionally friendly, helpful and incredibly fit! The teahouses chosen were all comfortable and had excellent food (albeit mainly dhal baat, hehehe), and plenty of hot tea. When bad wheather struck, Maule tailored our trek accordingly (after discussing it with us of course) to ensure we remained safe. Our additions to the trip where also excellent. Rajan (the owner of Earthbound) was very friendly as well and ensured we were comfortable and well taken care of. The hotel (Thamel Eco-Lodge) in Kathmandu was very comfortable and clean. The Kathmandu city tour was very interesting and well organised with a private shuttle bus to get us around. Our trip to Pokhara and to Chitwan were also fantastic. (We got terrible food poising in Chitwan through no fault of the company but although we were sick it was great to see that everyone was concerned and offered as much assistance as possible until we were well again.) Earthbound expeditions is an exceptional company and made our dream of visiting Base Camp a reality in a well organized, comfortable, friendly and safe way. I would recommend them very highly and in fact are already thinking about planning our next trip to Nepal with them. Read less

Wonderful Nepal trek

I got the amazing opportunity to experience the Everest area with Earthbound Expeditions. It was such a great experience, very organized, and gave a fantastic overview of the Nepali culture and people. It was a life-changing experience. Nepal is a magical place and I am so grateful to have used Earthbound to show me the way. I can't say enough good things about how they made me feel. It's like I was brought into a family, and felt safe with their knowledgeable guides. I highly recommend this track and company! Thank you so much Earthbound Expeditions!!

For the best trip- ask for Namaraj

I booked the 17-day Earthbound trek through a deal website, so I was a little skeptical. There were some struggles along the way (all weather-related), but in the end, this company was really very good. The owner was really easy to work with and everything was organized very well. But what really made the trip for me, and the rest of the group, was our guide, Namaraj Sapkota. He went above and beyond any expectation, I could have had. Hew as extremely caring, has strong moral character, and never gave upon us. He had a strong bond with all of the porters and is an excellent leader. I cant say enough about Nama (we called him that for short). I made a good friend over the two weeks we spent with him. If you do end up booking through Earthbound, ask for Nama to be assigned to your group. I guarantee you will have the best trip with him. He taught me to say "Ma phēri nēpāla ā'una." Which means "I come to Napal again" and I hope that I do.

Everest Panorama Trek

Just finished this 7-day trek. Rajan arranges everything, airport transfers, hotels, flights and anything else you may need. Nothing is a problem to him. This is my second trekking holiday with Earthbound Expeditions and would recommend them 100% for their professionalism, adaptability and an amazing experience. I was lucky enough to have Ranjit as my guide on both treks. His 19 years of experience as a guide in the Himalayas is obvious with his guesthouse choices, leadership, advice and fun-loving attitude. If you do an Earthbound trek make sure you ask fur Ranjit as your guide. Hard work and fun guaranteed. !!!!!

Everest panorama trek

I did a 5 days trek on the road to Everest Base Camp. The organization provided by Earthbound Expeditions was great and my guide, Bharat, was excellent. It was a real pleasure to spend this day with him. It was my first time in Nepal but certainly not the last and i will require Earthbound Expeditions services again with no hesitation.

Rajan and his team looked after us very well for the second time

We, 3 amigos, organized a personalized 10 days Everest Panoramic View Trek a with Kathmandu Heritage Site visits. Mr Rajan looked after us very well and sorted out all our extra requests professionally and without hesitation. We had another great experience with his trekking company and the price was not bad either. I do recommend for the younger trekkers to use Bikram as your guide as he looked after us very well and joked and ate with us most of the time and not forgetting our porter we named Lucky. The hotel we stayed at in Thamel was great as well which Mr Rajan arranged. On our third trip in 2020 we will use this trekking company again for the Mount Kalash trek
