We recently traveled to India, Nepal and Bhutan. Earthbound expeditions (Rajan) organised it all. Or pick ups and departures from every point where always there, friendly and helpful as well. We had some great guides over the trip and Rajan was always communicating to all our questions. I would easily recommend this company to organise your trip, ours was a specialized tour meeting our needs and requests. Thanks to Rajan and his team for a great experience. :-)

I had a one in a lifetime custom trip starting in India going to Nepal and Bhutan. As a single female traveler I was worried, but Earthbound Expeditions took care of everything for me. Rajan was amazing and I even stayed at his home one day where his wife taught me all about nepalese and indian cuisine. I will never forget the time I had and the beautiful sites and places I visited. I highly recommend Rajan and Earthbound Expeditions. Thank you for everything.
