We allowed for a day in 'luxury' ok arrival to Kathmandu (stayed in the Hyatt) before our adventure began! The trip with earthbound expeditions was incredible. There is nothing I repeat nothing like staying in the hills of the Himalayas, in simple cabins, huddled in your sleeping bags and blankets, bed at 8 or 9 pm, simple but lovely lovely food made by the house owner (what id give for more dhal bat, momos and those Nepalese fried breads!). Nothing like knowing how far you've trekked that day and that you've finally arrived in your destination for the day. Nothing like seeing rolling hills 2000metres below, or the sunset over the mighty peaks across the way. Our guide was amazing, Thakur Sapkota. He took care if us like a brother or father, and I never doubted him. Of all the groups (there were three in our 'trip') I was glad he was our guide. Nepal felt safe, fun, wonderful people, cheap and good value, most beautiful scenery. I was definitely shocked at the poverty when arriving, but quickly realised it was safe and you get accustomed to it. I'm so shocked and horrified by the recent earthquakes - life is just not fair for this poor gem of a country. Nepal was rising as a traveller destination - continue one and all I say. I would love to go back and plan to - I never got to chitwan national park! I wish to see her (Nepal) rise up again.

Earthbound organized a well rounded tour; with sightseeing, rafting, and trekking. Everyone involved was friendly, helpful, fair and fun. Rajan is good about knowing which areas are safe and tourist friendly after the earthquake. Traveling with Earthbound is a great way to help the economy and keep these wonderful people employed. And it will be an amazing trip too!

Earthbound Expeditions were a professional organisation. We walked to Base Camp and our guides Rajit and Bebek were excellent. They were always very happy and kind. If it wasn't for Rajit I don't think I would have made it to Base Camp due to altitude sickness but because he was so patient and skilful I did accomplish this.
Thank you all for a fantastic holiday.

Earthbound Expeditions (Kedar) was very helpful organizing a trek of the entire Annapurna Circuit. The scenery was breathtaking, and the villages warm and friendly, with many side trips to the local monasteries. Despite encountering record snow in the Annapurna Conservation Area, the trip was quite simply outstanding. It should be on your bucket list! The guide, Dil Man, was well trained and equipped for the snow, and helped safely guide everyone across the pass when the weather permitted. I used them to tour the UNESCO Sites around Kathmandu, luckily before the quake, and again to visit Chitwan. I can't say enough good things about Earthbound and its staff. They made my trip to Nepal wonderful.

Rajan is a good man. Yes, he runs a business so needs to make a living but he's a bright guy and knows his suppliers. The result is he delivers well priced, efficient services. I went back to Sagarmatha, KTM and Chitwan a year after my first trek with Zearthbound and Rajan helped set up all of that too. Today's earthquake reminded me that I never did a review but after two sets of arrangements one in October 2013 and one in October 2014 I still strongly recommend him. The October 2013 was complicated by Cyclone Phaillin which resulted in a lot of management from Rajan, all ably handled.
