Wonderful Nepal trekking

My wife and I first went to Nepal at the end of January and did the Kathmandu Valley Rim trek with Earthbound Expeditions. We had such an amazing time that we went back to Nepal in early March and did the Everest trek. Both times, Earthbound looked after us from start to finish. On our first trek, I will always remember the moment we reached the top of the Kathmandu Valley rim (at around 2,100m), and the view of the Himalayan mountains opened up in front of us. It was simply breathtaking! At that point, I knew I wanted to be closer to those giants. We were fortunate to find the time to go back to Nepal for our second trek in the Khumbu region. Although Tengboche was our farthest point on the trek, we were still surrounded by 6,000m, 7,000m and 8,000m mountains! And thanks to Resham our Earthbound guide, and Bhim our porter, we were well looked after all the way. We were impressed by Earthbound's owner Rajan Simkhada and his dedication to his work. We communicated by email before we arrived in Nepal, and he was there to greet us when we arrived. He is very professional and well informed, and he is passionate about Nepal and giving back to the community. One thing also to note - Earthbound seems to be highly regarded by the teahouses, which would make a difference in securing accommodation during peak periods. We'll definitely visit Nepal again, most likely with Earthbound, as there is so much more there that we haven't seen and experienced.
