“Annapurna Circuit”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I'd better get the review written before Christmas comes along. We engaged Earthbound to put together a custom Annapurna circuit trip for 3 50+ old blokes. They were excellent, first class !! Rajan is an amazing man, he remembers everyone is always on top of all the organisation. The guide and 2 porters we were allocated (Hari, Arjun and Madang) were also fantastic. If I have go back, Earthbound will be my first choice.

“Wonderful Nepal trek in Langtang Valley”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Can't say enough great things about this land, the people, and Earthbound Expeditions. Every need was met, the staff was super friendly, and the guide/porter were awesome. I can't wait to head back sometime in the next couple years or so, and I will definitely use this company again.

“Wonderful service, excellent experince.”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Once I did my research and settled on Earthbound Expeditions, Rajan was excellent to communicate with. Helped me to make an itinerary that I was happy with at a price I was also satisfied with. Once there everything went very smoothly. All the different drivers and guides were on-time. The guide and porter for my trek where good. And when I had an issue and needed to make a last minute change to my itinerary Rajan took care of it promptly with no additional charges. Rajan also personally accompanied several of us to dinner on our first night and called a number of times during the trip just to make sure everything was all good. All in all excellent customer service and one that I would feel comfortable to recommend to anyone coming to Nepal.

“Everest Base Camp 2012”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This is the 2nd time we've travelled with Earthbound Expeditions (EE), the first trip being Kailash in 2006. Warm hospitality by Rajan Simkhada and his crew makes travelling with EE a delightful experience. His highly trained staff kept us very comfortable throughout our trek and instilled reassurance when the going got tough. This, along with the superior level of local knowledge and enthusiasm by all crew members allowed us to soak up and thoroughly appreciate every ounce of the culture and customs that we encountered en route making the whole trip thoroughly enjoyable. We felt Rajan and his team had a unique way of identifying personal needs from an early stage and made a conscientious effort to cater for these throughout the trek- this really gave the experience a personal touch and is great in making you feel at home when in reality you couldnt be further! Without EE we wouldn't have reached Everest Base Camp 2012 and fulfilled a life-long dream- For this reason I will definately be booking a 3rd trip with this organisation and highly recommend it to all those reading this since EE really are second to none in aiding you to transform your dreams into reality!!

“Kailash Mansarovar, August 2012”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We, a team of 10 like minded friends can never thank Rajan and his team at Earthbound for making our KMS yatra, a truly blessed and most memorable experience of our lives. We all completed our trip successfully on 3rd Sept, 2012. Some of us managed to do "Charan Sparsh -most wonderful experience" from the North Face of Kailash from Derapuk.
A billion thanks to Sriram who helped us in our mission. Sri never let us us give up, gently prodding and encouraging us throughout the trek. This made us feel like seasoned trekkers giving us a lot of confidence. God Bless Sri and his wonderful attitude. Sri is indeed a great team leader .
More thanks coming your way......
Arjun was a gentle and smiling human being who looked after us very well. Hari was a great entertainer and a good cook. His cooking constantly tickled our taste buds. The awesome trio of Sriram, Arjun & Hari met our countless demands with a smile.
If the Great Lord wills it, we want to come back and do inner kora with you and the same team of Sri, Arjun n Hari
Rajan who heads this team is a fantabulous person so simple, humble and positive.
