Comments about Nepal - Tibet
tour by Simone & team ( 4 pax), July - 2007
Charlotta and I are sadly back at work in Rome, with many
fond memories of our Nepal - Tibet trip. We certainly will
endorse Earthbound Expeditions and suggest it to any person
we will meet who will be planning to travel in the Himalayan
area - we actually hope to come back for a trekking some day
in Nepal. Kathmandu - Lhasa - Everest tour was a truly memorable
trip and a very good service from Earthbound Expeditions.
Namaste, and thanks again,
Simone and Team from Italy
about Kathmandu - Everest - Lhasa tour by Helene & Paul,
June - 2007
First of all I would like to apologize for late reply.
Paul and myself relly enjoyed the Tibet - EBC Trip you have
arranged for us. It really gave us a good first taste (for
a full taste one have to spend more than 10 days in Tibet!)
of Tibet and its cultural / religious attractions as well
as its landscape and beautiful mountains.
The trip was very well arranged, with the best possible choice
of accomodation as well as of the Tibetan guide and driver.
Not only this made the trip an unmissible and unforgettable
experience, but as well your candid preparation and description
of what we have to expect in Tibet and how certain situations
are best dealt with. We also enjoyed the few days in Nepal
before and after the the trip to Tibet, where Rajan and his
team made sure we got the most out of the 3 days we spent
Many thanks again for this great trip and we will cetainly
get in touch again when we plan our next trip to the Himalayan

Comments about Kailash - Mansarovar
tour by Raj and Team ( 11 pax), July - Aug. 2006
To Whom It May Concern,
We would like to convey our sincerest thanks to Rajan
for making our trip to Kailash Mansarovar a dream come true.
A group of 11 of us set out to begin our trip from Katmandu.
Rajan and his team of Sherpas and jeep drivers treated us
family and our trip began wonderfully and remained so for
the duration. They took care of the needs of each individual
as well as the group; they catered to every detail with the
utmost of care and attention. Every aspect of our trip was
carefully thought out and planned with great consideration.
He selected truly remarkable spots for us to carry out our
Puja’s and ceremonies, a true sign of someone who has
put their heart and soul into making this trip and extraordinary
experience. Despite the weather conditions we never experienced
any kind of discomfort. Rajan and his team ensured the comfort
and health of the group was held as the highest priority.He
is someone of the highest integrity, extremely joyous company.
The group agreed that he was a fantastic guide, who integrated
so well into our group. He was warm and very friendly. Our
trip was full of laughter and love. Our warmest thanks to
Rajan, Shree Ram, Sarki, Gambu, Mwali and Mirmanr the cook
who all looked after us like family. We have another trip
planned in the year 2008 with Rajan. Kailash is a truly magical
place, but words cannot express how this beauty was bought
to life by Rajan and his team. If you would like to know more
about our trip and our experience with Earthbound Expeditions
please write to us via email

Dear Mr. Rajan,
I would like to express my sincere thanks to you for making
our Muktinath trip so memorable and convenient. With five
out of eight persons over 65 years of age and the weather
playing the spoil sports, our trip would not be successful
and easy with out your help and expertise. All the eight members
of our group wanted to thank you separately. Every one was
very happy to be part of your trip and want to take your help
when ever they visit Nepal. Your arrangement of the transportation
and hotels were excellent and we do not have word to express
our thanks. In spite of out time constraints and the unpredictable
weather, you made our trip easy and enjoyable. We were very
impressed with your professional approach and the way you
took care of minute details including the pure veg food for
our group and special arrangements for the elderly persons.
AS regards Kailash trip, I am trying to work out some thing
and I believe this will be possible only next year some where
in June/ July. In any case I will be in touch with you once
I made some progress in this regards.
Thanks once again for your help and very good arrangement
for our trip. Best regards

Earthbound Expeditions, Kathmandu, Nepal
Dear Mr. Simkhada:
We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping
us realize our lifelong dream of circumambulating Mount Kailash
and taking a bath in Lake Manasarover. The 35 days trip that
you planned and led for the two of us plus Ms. Lydia Kersbergen,
Holland, was beyond our expectations. (May 16 thru June 20,
2004. Las Vegas - Kathmandu - Naylam - Saga - Parang - Manasarovar
- Darchen - Mt Kailash - Tharpoche - Tingri - Mt. Everest
Base Camp - Lhatse - Shigatse - Gyantse - Lhasa- Kathmandu
- Las Vegas)
Your team of three Nepalese and three Tibetans worked very
well together. In fact, within a few days of the journey,
we were all like one big family. Our Toyota Landcruiser driver,
Mr. Tsering, is one of the best drivers and mechanics that
I have ever met. He made us feel very safe thru all those
treacherous mountain passes. Out Tibetan guide, Mr.Tenthar
was very helpful and eager to please. His attitude made up
for his basic English speaking skills. Our Nepalese cook,
Mr. Gambu Sherpa, made such wonderful food throughout the
trip that we were afraid of gaining weight! Thanks to Mr.
Gambu, we had three real fresh baked cakes to celebrate our
anniversary, my birthday and our farewell. We also want to
thank you for taking time off from your busy schedule and
personally accompanying us throughout the journey and helping
us with the three-day trek around Mt. Kailash. I don't think
we would have been able to complete the three-day trek by
own feet at our age without your constant guidance and help
We will definitely visit Nepal and Tibet again. We hope to
do next year the lodge-to-lodge trekking in Nepal. Once again,
thank you for the successful planning and leading of our once-in-a-life
spiritual journey and trekking adventure.
P.S. If you want you can use us as reference
if any body want to call us or e-mail us to talk directly
they are welcome!

Comments by: Lydia Kersbergen,
from Holland, May - June 2004 about Tibet - Kailash - Lhasa
- Kathmandu Tour
From May 18th till June 19th your travel agency Earthbound
Expeditions took us on a breathtaking journey to Tibet.
For my fellow travelers Subitha and Raja to fulfill their
religious wish to make the khora around Lake Manasarovar and
Mount Kailash. And for me to visit one of the most holy and
unspoiled places on this earth. For all three of us the journey
of a lifetime!
Already in making the itinerary and preparing us for this
journey you showed your experience.
You planned enough time to acclimatize to the Tibetan plateau,
to do Lake Manasarovar khora before Mount Kailash khora and
finish it before June 2nd so we could enjoy Saga Dawa festival
Including the visit to Everest Base Camp was a good idea.
Some stunning views on the way up there. From there to Lhasa
the roads and hotels were getting better and we became tourists
in stead of pilgrims. Shigatse, Gyantse and finally three
days in Lhasa offered us the highlights of Tibetan culture.
During our stay in West Tibet the Nepali crew with you as
our guide, Gambu Sherpa as our chef-cook and Ram Chandra Sapkota
as assistant proved of immense importance.
Without your arrangements, support and good care the trip
would never have been so successful and pleasant. The equipment
you provided like tents, sleeping bags, down jackets were
It still amazes me how Gambu Sherpa managed to make such wonderful
meals in such difficult conditions. He surprised us every
Of the Tibetan crew, truck driver Tashi, jeep driver Tsering
and guide Tenthar especially Cijilag (Tsering) excelled. He
is our nominee for Tibet’s Best Driver. After almost
4 weeks of safe driving he expressed his friendship by inviting
us to his home in Lhasa.
Before the journey I did not realize that you planned our
stay in Nepal so wonderful!
We really appreciated that our journey started and ended in
the luxury of Hyatt Regency Kathmandu. Not only did we visit
the most interesting places in Kathmandu like Durbar square,
(Kumari Devi!) Pashupatinath, Bodhnath and Thamel. You also
took us to Patan and Bhaktapur and we stayed the night at
Nagarkot, to enjoy the fresh mountain air and the view of
What you showed us of Nepal makes me want to come back. I’m
sure that you have lots of interesting proposals (Mustang
Last but not least I want to thank you for guiding us personally.
Your knowledge of so many topics and your humor makes you
a great traveling companion. Thank you Rajan !
