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.
