Amazing local company very trustworthy and really care about their customers
Nov. 2019
I have used Earthbound Expeditions three times while visiting Nepal, including treks to Everest Basecamp and the Annapurna Circuit. You will be in good hands with them from the moment you plan your trip until they see you off to return home. Their guides are great, especially Chetan, he made both of my long treks even more enjoyable. When you arrive at the airport you will know you are working with a service that wants your entire visit to Nepal to be perfect...their driver is the best, he's picked me up several times and is always right there when you walk out of the airport.

EBC Trek: Amazing Nepal Adventure!
I have been planning this trip for 2yrs from the time I've done Kilimanjaro. This company has been referred by a friend and I didn't bother contacting other companies. Rajan, the President of the company based in Kathmandu has been very helpful in answering my questions in a timely manner.
After 2yrs of waiting, flights has been booked and I am very excited for this new adventure! Rajan made sure my questions are all answered and emailed me all the infos I need to know before arriving into Kathmandu.
Arrived into KTM safe and sound but visa on arrival took at least 3hrs to obtain. I recommend applying for a visa before you depart in KTM. Was able to find the driver right away although it took me time since I dont see any of my name but just the company name, good thing I mentioned the name of Rajan so I knew Rajan sent him for me. I stayed for 2nyts at the hotel and I was sent off for my flight to Lukla and met my guide/porter. After 2days to the trek, I asked Rajan if he could replace my current guide since he doesn't speak english well and couldn't communicate properly although he is good at taking care of my needs. This is important to me since I'm Solo and I need someone to talk with during the trek, even if it's just about random stuff. I am VERY GRATEFUL for Rajan once again, on our 2nd day in Namche, he sent my new guide Chattan Rai and was with him until the end of my trek. CHATTAN RAI was very helpful and he was able to answer all my questions, although I asked a lot of questions every single day. Cant blame me since I'm curious.😊 We talked. Laughed. And has was able to put up with me when I was cranky because of headache.
All the lodges we stayed at during the trek were all nice especially on Namche where they have hot showers and heated blanket! I requested a private room and they tried to provide it to me although they cannot make reservations wa ahead of time so we're pretty lucky getting pretty decent rooms for the whole trek.
I would definitely use Earthbound Expeditions again since I am planning another trip to Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet in a couple of years and would definitely request Chattan to be my guide.
You guys should definitely give this company a try and ask for Chattan as your guide!
All their guides and drivers are very kind and helpful and always on time.
Thank you again Rajan and company!
Until next time.

Highly recommend the EBC Trekking with Earthbound Expeditions. Tough trek, but rewarded with stunning views!
- Rajan was responsive and accommodating. By having the president of the company intimately involved with the details of my trek, it shows that he cares and sets a great example for his team.
- Professional, knowledgeable and courteous guide, Bibek, and porter, Bibechan.
Recommendations:
- If you can go solo with a guide and a porter, it gives you more flexibility.
- Take another day or two descending so you can go down on the other side of the mountain visiting the oldest monastery in the Everest region, experiencing less traffic, and enjoying amazing view of the valley and wildlife.
- Try to take a direct flight back from Lukla to Kathmandu.
- If you have time, visit Pokhara - quaint and clean city - paragliding, white water rafting, etc.
Overall, I had a wonderful time in Nepal with great experience from the planning to the end of the trip with Earthbound Expeditions.

EBC - Sept-Oct 2019
Oct. 2019 • Friends
Group of 11 of us embarked on the journey to trek from Lukla to Everest Base Camp. With Earthbound Expeditions experienced team the entire trip was made exceptionally pleasant and stress free for us first timers. Arjun and Ram who accompanied us on the trek as guides were exceptional. They went above and beyond their normal duties to make sure all of us were comfortable and successful in completing the EBC trek.
They treated us as family and I have found life long friends in them.
I highly recommend Earthbound for any of your future expedition needs.

One of my best treks todate
Jun. 2019 • Family
I and my 14 year old son, were part of a large group that trekked to the Everest Base Camp. We also went on a mountaineering trip to Mt. Lobouche on the way. :)

From the time we landed in Kathmandu to the time we left for home, Rajan and his crew left no stone unturned to make this trip as comfortable and memorable as possible. The food was great and the accommodations were comfortable. The guides and porters took extra care to ensure our safety and comfort during the treks and at the various lodges we stayed at on the way. We were also well informed on what our day(s) would entail. Special shoutout to Gokul who carried a sick child on his back for miles, on the trek from Dingboche to Kala pathar lodge on our way to Lobouche.

Customer service is a commitment and not a mere slogan for these wonderful people. And they do it all with a genuine warm smile.

I am already looking forward to my next Himalayan expedition!

EBC Trek - One of the best till date
Jul. 2019 • Friends
Hello All
Recently along with Rajan/Earthbound expedition, I lead a team of 26 folks, friends and family from all around the world (8 women, 18 men, 8 kids less than 15years, age spread from 10-65, 10 of them never set foot on a mountain, 3 nationalities) for a 10 day EBC trek. Our journey was between 22nd June to 1st July. End of the season, beginning of monsoon. Some high lights:

- ONe of the best organized trip I have been to. (This is my 6th such mountain expedition)
- Brilliant customer service, flexible and passionate staff and amazing set of human beings
- Nice selection of lodges. Best in town in every place
- Amazing well cooked, hygienic and tasty food right through
- Good dose of character and culture. - Starting the morning with a prayer and ending with team meeting - Beautifully structured day
- Rajan - Best in class tour operator, Fluent English speaker, understands the needs of a diverse crew, customer focussed mindset, brilliant set of team members

HIGHLY Recommend everyone who is considering an EBC trek to go with Rajan and his team (Earthbound Adventures)

Portion of us did a summit bid to Labuche East too. It went well.. we all sumitted. Great set up in high camp (Didn't expect a tent with a nice bed in high camp!!). Good food too.
One thing to improve: Have a satellite phone for summit team comms with base team to avoid unnecessary anxiety due to lack of communication with the summit team .

Overall: Amazing experience. HIGHLY recommended outfit to plan your EBC trek

Best

The most amazing 10 days of my life!
Jun. 2019 • Friends
The hike from Lukla to Everest Base Camp was about pushing our selves to our limits on most days, and what helped a lot was Rajan and his team taking care of all the support we needed through it all. Rajan has setup a great team which is very courteous and always willing to help out whatever the situation we might be facing. The tea houses on the way were much beyond what we expected. We had attached toilets half the way and the initial ones even had heated blankets. The food was basic, healthy and nutritious.
Overall a great experience thanks to the Earthbound expeditions Team!

Experience of a lifetime!!
Apr. 2019 • Friends
Until I set out on this trek, I had absolutely no clue how much planning and organization would go in to successfully taking 7 women of all ages to Everest Base Camp and back. I don't think I can ever thank this company and specifically Hari, our guide enough for this amazing experience. Even before the included days of the trek began, I was 100% taken care of by Mr. Rajan and company. From the accommodations in Kathmandu, through every tea house we stayed at along the way, I never once doubted we we're being cared for to the fullest. Not only did they care for our health and safety while completing a 12 day high altitude hike, but ensured we also learned about the Nepalese and Sherpa culture. Throughout the trek, I gained more and more love and respect for this company and our guide from witnessing and talking to other trekkers in other guide companies. Our guide Hari was able to manage 7 women of different paces, 3 (amazing) porters, and 12 days of accommodations/meals/ altitude complications, with grace and humor and brought us all together as a family. The only doubt you will have about this trek is not snatching it up when you get the chance! Dhanyabaad Hari!!
