#1 Nepal/Tibet Tour Co. ~ Earthbound Expeditions

I've spent my working overtime income traveling the world, but I have never had a trip I loved more than my recent trip to Nepal and Tibet with stopovers in India. From the first day I booked my trip many months ago, I felt like Earthbound Expeditions was family. Emails were returned immediately, and I have never received such personalized care. If you have any doubts about seeing this part of the world, forget your concerns! Contact Rajan, owner. Better yet, we 3 ladies were able to customize our trip. We felt like royalty. Never have we experienced a trip jammed packed with memory-making experiences. Kathmandu is one of the most amazing cities in the world, so alive and gifted with the kindest people ever. But discover the magnificent waterfalls and majestic mountains, too. Special? We savored a 4-hour jungle safari atop an elephant (and then bathed the elephants!), tracked and found a wild rhino, loved several boat rides, walked the steps of the Dalai Lama's Palaces, and had immense fun bargaining at every market imaginable. I could write a book. The scenery was drop-dead gorgeous, and flying over Mount Everest was unforgettable. Our guide, Hari, in Nepal and our driver Deepok were frosting to the best cake I have ever eaten. We wanted to bring them back to the States with us. Please visit Tibet NOW. The culture is fast changing, so see it while the alleyways still remind you of the old country. I waited until my 60's to see these magnificent countries, and it was worth the wait, understatement. Fantastic Earthbound Expeditions, for touring and trekking, gave us exceptional service with a smile and prices that were terrific. Earthbound is A+ all the way around.

Wonderful Nepal/Tibet Tour!

"Naturally Nepal: Once is not enough!" I went to Nepal/Tibet with 2 women friends and we couldn't have been treated and cared for any better. Earthbound Expeditions is an amazing travel company and I would recommend them to everyone and anyone. Beginning with emails months before our trip to the day we came home, we were cared for. And I feel like we are STILL being cared for! Nepal is a gorgeous country. The Himalayas make the Rocky Mountains I live in look like foothills. Our guide Hari and our driver Deepok in Nepal were fantatstic. The catered to us all the way including "Cheeseballs"!!! Inside joke. As well as "this is Nepal". :) Tibet, as the Rooftop of the World is unbelievable. We were there during Holy Week and got to experience all the pilgrims coming from all over Tibet to visit them monasteries and temples. It was an extremely enlightening experience for me. The devotion, commitment to Budda is eye opening and perfectly awesome. If you have any desires to go to Tibet I will make that trip sooner rather than later. The Chinese are making a huge impact. Some of it positive (good infrasture as far as roads etc.) but much of it very sad and the Chinese are changing the face of Tibet. The people in both Nepal and Tibet are just lovely, generous and very special. If you are looking for a trip of a lifetime (and I don't mean Europe) than these are the countries for you and Earthbound Expeditions is the company for you. Graciously, Kim Kim Kirmmse Toth

Breath-taking Himalaya Trekking

While I am always travelling solo, I took a chance with a small group trekking adventure with Earthbound via Rajan Simkhada - Earthbound (simkhadar@yahoo.com). I had the most wonderful experience and met the most helpful staff (hotel and trek). The trek leader and the boys carrying our gear became family before the end of the trek. I was extremely impressed with the Thamel Eco Resort accommodations. Not only were they the most comfortable among the places I stayed during my 3 month S. Asian trip, but the price for the rooms were only what I could call inexpensive, if not cheaply priced, when they could have been double and I still would have been happy to pay. I will surely use Earthbound arrangements again not only for a return Nepal trip but also to visit Tibet and possibly northern India. Thank you Rajan and please say namaste to all the trek staff, including Ajay Dharal, the trek leader as well as Prakesh, food provider Sushel, the famous dancing machine Buddhi and, finally, the funny and easy-going Ramesh Tamang. See you all soon at the Thamel Eco Resort and at Earthbound!

Flawless India Nepal Trip

I am really impressed with Earthbound. The guides and drivers were really friendly and helpful and Rajan (the director of Earthbound) was always available by phone and email. It was a trip of a lifetime. I would recommend Earthbound Expeditions to anyone. I am hoping to return to India at the end of this year and I will certainly be in touch with Rajan.

Excellent tour

I met Rajan in the US at a travel show. I contacted him by email afterward & I was given an exceptional tour price. I decided to move forward to go to India & Nepal with Earthbound Expeditions. Everything was great. They take great care of you and cater to single travelers. In Nepal, my trek was with Pradeep. He was able to keep up me me & my physical level. Great guy. Great tour! A few months after I returned, a friend was going to India and was inspired by my pics. I referred her to Earthbound and she also gave rave reviews of her tour. If I ever find myself going back to India or neighboring countries, I won't hesitate to go with Earthbound.

Fantastic Personalized Trip through Tibet

My son and I wanted to experience Tibet but had no idea where to start. Earthbound Expeditions had the answer. We had only 6 days, and for a great price they flew the two of us from Kathmandu where we stayed in Lhasa for 3 days and drove overland back to Kathmandu. Our excellent guide took us to the key monasteries, palaces, and temples of Lhasa. His knowledge was encyclopedic. He drove us over 9 mountain passes to the Friendship Bridge, and we took a 9 hour detour to see Mount Everest base camp. It was the trip of a lifetime. I would definitely recommend Earthbound Expeditions to anyone traveling in the Himalayas!

Incredible Tibet!

The whole trip was organized very professionally by Earthbound Expeditions from applying for the Tibet group visa, through to rearranging flights into Tibet. I joined two other tourists to go into Tibet with. We were greeted at Lhasa airport by our guide Lakpa and driver Penba of Kyunglung Travel. Over the next nine days we all became great friends and had quite a few laughs and saw some truly amazing sights. The trip was everything I had hoped for and more. The monasteries we visited were very interesting and Lakpa did his utmost to make sure we understood the history in great detail. He is very knowledgable and passionate about his country. The highlight for me was to visit Everest Base Camp and stay the night in a tent (see separate review highly recommended). To walk out of the tent at night and stand beneath the amazingly clear skies, the Milky Way above my head with Everest at the end of the valley is one memory I will never forget. Tibet is an amazing country, full of interesting and surprising people and sights. It is also challenging in regards the climate and altitude but the amazing scenery, the vivid blue skies and the people more than make up for this. Thanks to Earthbound Expeditions who made this trip possible. Go now before it changes too much.

You and all involved people did a very good job

Dear Rajan Thank you for you mail. Am terribly late with answering. My life is running faster than I can at the moment. As you know I have started the new radio job, next to my normal job. It is good fun, but a lot of work. I want to thank you again for your good organization and the work you have done for our Nepal and Tibet tour group. The entire 13 group members were very satisfied and went home with good memories. We were very lucky with a guide like Surendra. You and all involved people did a very good job. Thank you !
