Earthbound Expeditions are amazing! My friend and I booked them for a Kathmandu Valley Tour, Nagarkot day hike and off road downhill biking. Basically, we just gave them our dates and they came up with the itinerary. Their guides are so friendly. They really make sure you're enjoying and comfortable. Worth every dollar!
We used Rajan of Earthbound Expeditions and his recommendations to set-up a day hike from Katmandu overnighting at the Club Himalaya Hotel in Nagarkot and then down to Nala. Our guide Sam picked a very scenic route and we enjoyed the local restaurants he chose. The scenery was amazing to and from Nagarkot and watching the sunrise over the Himalayas from the roof top viewing area at Club Himalaya is something we will never forget. Thank-you to Rajan and his team for a great experience.
