Nepal Panorama Tour & Volunteering

This year for my birthday I wanted to go to Kathmandu to help children with disabilities and without parents. It's become somewhat of a yearly tradition for me to help such children - it is my gift to myself, but not knowing anyone in Nepal I did a bit of research and eventually found Earthbound Expeditions headed up by the extremely intelligent, warm, and dynamic Rajan Simkhada. I was extremely impressed by how quickly he responded to my messages at all times of day and even more so when I found out how busy he was with civic and community projects aimed at improving life for the Nepali people and giving back. Their Ganesh Himal Charity trip was a wonderful idea but like so many people today with very little time I did not have the amount of time necessary to do take this tour. I explained to Rajan my situation and what I wanted to do and he custom made an itinerary to accommodate my wishes. I was sincerely impressed with his staff such as Shreeram Adhikari who outside of trekking up to the earth's highest point was assisting in the civic and community projects to aid Nepalese people. Rajan and Shree along with the rest of their staff did everything possible to make my trip to Nepal my favorite one to date. I accomplished all I set out to do and more. In a country with more spirit and kindness than money or infrastructure this is a HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT! I would HIGHLY Recommend Earthbound Expeditions to ANYONE seeking to visit the beautiful country of Nepal, India, Bhutan, or any other area they service.

Mr Rajan and his team made it to be absolutely amazing time.
Pick up at airport, hotel in kathmandu and pokhara were good, guesthouse and transfer good.You felt welcome at first moment.I came alone from Norway, but no worry I met a great crew of people.
We were 10 people from different parts of the world, and also different ages, we hang together up in the Nepali mountains plus our guide Apar and three porters.
Our guide was so friendly and helpful he did awesome job organizing, you felt safe and good with him around.The porters did a great job too, keep up with our luggage, always smiling and friendly. Ramjee Bhatta who saw the moment when we need a song to keep going and hanging in there, very friendly, helpful and service minded.
All together this team provided me with a never forgotten trip BRAVO it was great!
Thank you all, a professional and dedicated staff.
I cant wait to come back and see more of Nepal.
I definitely recommended this trip and with Earthbound!

I truly had the most wonderful time and really did not want to come home. Rajan, Sabi, Kumar and all the drivers were just a pleasure to deal with and so well informed and full of knowledge about the area. I learned a great deal from the guides about the Nepali culture, history and countryside and I cannot wait to return one day with my family. Sabi in particular was a great companion for the trek and I really think he made my holiday so fantastic.

I cannot thank you and earthbound expeditions enough for making my trip so easy and stress free, I had an amazing time and will be recommending you to all my friends and family if they are going to visit the area.
Thank you again

“Excellent trekking tour!”

Mountain and Tiger Tour


Since I am 60 years old my wife and were a little nervous about the physical demands of this tour. I followed the training recommendations and was rewarded with a fantastic trip. I won't repeat the other reviews which are so positive that one would expect they might be fake. Trust me this organisation babies you the whole way leaving you to enjoy the hike, the food, the scenery and the wonderful people. Here are some tips. Go in October which is sunny and warm.Take the rafting option. Use hand santizer often. Bring power bars. Bring aqua tabs and flavored electrolyte tablets. Bring flip flops and micro fibre towels. Use zip lock bagsto separate your items. Bring a emergency poncho as well as a thin water proof jacket. I would allow two days n Katmandu prior to the tour and take a day tour of the city but leave the day the tour ends. The tiger hunt part of this tour was especially interesting as we stayed in a nice resort in Chitwan park and actually herded a nasty rino on while riding the elephants. If you like adventure -- take this tour

Excellent Tsum Valley Trek


I took a trip to Nepal in October 2014, including a trek of Tsum Valley and another couple of weeks split between Pokhara and Kathmandu. Rajan at Earthbound Expeditions managed every aspect of my trip perfectly -- from the day tours to the hotels, jeep transports, internal flights, and an excellent local guide from the Tsum Valley. He was flexible when I wanted to make changes to my itinerary in the middle of the trip, and he met with me personally several times during the Kathmandu portion of my trip. I could not have asked for a better experience. I chose Earthbound Expeditions because a co-worker has used the company three times previously for her trips/treks in Nepal, Bhutan and India. The people I trekked with in Tsum have also used Earthbound twice before, and this was their third time. That says it all. Thank you, Rajan!
