My husband and I just came back from a terrific tour of Nepal and Bhutan organized by Rajan Simkkhada,president of Earthbound Expeditions,Nepal.We started with an exciting elephant safari at Chitwan National Reserve where we saw many rhinos as close as ten feet or less away. We also had a chance to see deers, a multitude of birds, monkeys dancing on trees and other animals.The nature walks , talks on elephants life were very educational and interesting. The facilities used by Earthbound were exceptional.The huts were nice,the food was absolutely scrumptious (all 3 meals) and the staff went beyong their call of duty. Lumbini ,birthplace of Buddha was very peaceful and serene compared to Boddgaya where He achieved Enlightment.
Bhutan was indeed the last shrangri la on earth.The scenery was spectacular,the people very kind and gentle.The restaurants and hotels used by Eathbound were much better than we saw on the internet.This trip is the 2nd one we took with Earthbound in 2 years. Highly recommended!

My son and I contacted Rajan of Earthbound Expeditions to help us put together a short trek up to the Annapurna Sanctuary. It was an amazing experience, and I hope you will consider it too if you are reading this. The villages and views along this route are like stepping back in time. The views of the three peaks of Annapurna were so magnificent, but equally amazing was walking along acient stone steps used by villagers who have lived here in this high mountains for centuries. We saw people plowing with water buffaloo, local brew being made, old women in colorful skirts and hand-embrodiered tops wearing beautiful beaded necklaces carrying heavy loads in baskets on top of their hears, and barefoot! We sat in the morning watching the sun turn the tops of Annapurna pink, and drank hot tea and ate momo's in a Tibetan teahouse at night. You can't help but feel special to be given this opportunity to visit this remote corner of the world, and Earthbound did a superb job in supplying us with a great guide, Narendra Timalsina, and a good route for us to take. I look forwrd to doing it again-I hope soon-and this time maybe go farther. I will aslo add that the rigors of the uphill climbing is quite a test of physical endurance if you are not used to backpacking-I'd advise you get in shape and you'll enjoy the trekking so much more!! Best of luck to all going to the mysterious and ancient Kathmandu--you will have a Friend in Rajan and Earthbound Exped.! when my luggage didn't show up right away, he was so helpful in assisting me with trying to locate my bags. It's good to have a friend in this part of the world, you can't go wrong with Rajan!

Me and my boyfreidn went in Nepal for a trekking on Annapurna region in August. We contacted Earthbound Expedition from Italy. They were very accomodating toward our need and request. We wanted to try a nonconventional trek (Tilicho Lake, tea house trekking) and we found them really prepared. They took care of us from airport pick up. Our guide (Sidip) and porter (Gokul) were both very prepared. Alway nice and careful. They were able to understand how we were feeling just looking at us. They knew every single stone of the path we were walking on. We had always good accomodations. The accomodation in Kathmandu was also very good (Samsara Hotel). Rajan, chief of Earthbound Expedition, took us to a restaurant for a tipical Nepalese evening. He was really very kind, hospitality was great! We really recommend Earthbound Expeditions!
