What they said who Nepal and Bhutan toured with us in… Aug. 2015
…they organized fantastic hotels, and a wonderful tour – a 12 day trip that was a glimpse into Nepal and Bhutan. Cannot think of the trip as any better and if you do go with them be sure to get to know Rajan better, he is a Nepalese renaissance man and his stories are super interesting. The whole experience, highest quality, was also relatively cheap as I was choosing from a number of agencies….

We are also happy to customize private treks of any lengths in Bhutan or in Nepal inclusive of all luxury facilities. Can extend trip to India – Taj Mahal or Tibet also.
Nepal and Bhutan tour can also be customized to suit individual interests and schedules. Best time of travel is Feb. to June and Oct. to Dec.

Note: Price William and Kate recently travelled India and Bhutan and enjoyed the beauty.
Similarly Harry also recently visited Nepal to hike, home stay, wildlife viewing and even did volunteering, so you can do similar tour with us.
You can combine India – Nepal and Bhutan tour or even Nepal – Tibet and Bhutan tour with us. Please contact us for details.

Mr. Rajan was superb in helping us to design a special three-country tour to Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. We started in Nepal with some tours of Kathmandu and then went hiking to Poonhill, this place, that place and others. The hikes were great and Ramjee was a very conscientious and helpful guide. We flew back from Pokara, overnighted in Kathmandu and then flew to Tibet, another fabulous experience. We did not go hiking in Tibet, but had plenty of walking in temples and monasteries and great road trips, including the Everest Base Camp. The longest day was from Lo Tingri, crossing the border and then the nine hour drive to Kathmandu. Next we flew to Bhutan where we had another very capable and knowledgeable guide and driver to show us the beautiful country of Bhutan. Rajan took care of all the airline tickets, hotels or guest houses, visas, and the itinerary which was very done. We highly recommend Earthbound Expeditions and we will definitely use them again. Thank very much, Namaste!
