Nepal trek and tour guide/ leaders of Earthbound Expeditions
group leaders / guides are the cream of the crop! They are
the reason that Earthbound's all trip work so well and the
reason why so many travelers return to us year after year.
They are experienced guides chosen not only for their ability
to make every trip more then you'd ever have hoped for, but
also for their passion and commitment to Himalayas and the
Earthbound way of travel. In addition to our group leaders,
we also sometimes use western guides when we go climbing or
visit special places. So we get the best of both worlds a
western leader with the local know-how who understands your
travel needs and our local friends and guides who share their
knowledge and experiences. They are always caring and attentive.

Our tour trek leaders / guide are there
to organize the trip and provide you with advice and information,
they will respect and encourage a traveler's needs to explore
independently and will ensure the trip allows it. One of the
great advantages of the Earthbound Expeditions' leader is
the introduction they give you to the country you visit, pointing
you in the right direction for the best place to eat or teaching
some useful everyday phrases. However, you will probably find
that you rely of them less and less during your trip as you
become more adventurous and familiar with your surroundings.
They are trained from the Nepal Academy of tourism and hotel
management and related tourism trainning sectors and registered
license holder. Have general training about first aid medical
course and eco - tourism. Some of our guides have over 20
years of experience in tourism. So you will be lead by field

role. You can find the words of praise about them in our "Testimonials"

[ Managing Director]
NIschal was born in a tourism
hub of Nepal in Thamel district of Kathmandu. From a very
young age he start knowing about tourists and their activities
in his neighbourhood so he decided to help them in many ways
( pointing them the name of the places in the Map to giving
right advice what to do and what not) . He was very passionate
about the beauties and secrets that could be found within
Nepal Himalayas. This together with his love for Hospitality
encouraged him to come into the tourism industry.
He has led trips to some of the most beautiful parts of the
Himalayan region (i.e. Langtang and Annapurna Regions).
Having met people from different countries and also travelled
himself to few countries, he felt that the service provided
by trekking companies in Nepal could be further improved to
meet international standard. Therefore he started Earthbound
Expeditions together with tourism experts.
Simkhada - Trip Planner & Leader
He started his career in tourism as a Front Desk Attendant
at a Hotel in Thamel in 1994. In 1996, he joined a reputed
trekking company, as tour and trek leader. During this period,
he led the tours to entire Nepal Himalaya, Tibet, India and
Bhutan. After leading many such tours and treks he established

his friends, started an independent company with the banner
"Earthbound Expeditions" in 1999.

all Nepal's Himalayas. Been to Tibet Kailash many
times. Government trained.
What they said...
"To my trekking guide, Shreeram - the days we
were together provided some deep insights into Nepalese
culture and everyday life outside of the city. He
give the visitor far more than can be found in a tourist
handbook. This is meeting the real Nepalese people
and finding a warmth that stays in the heart and travels
home. This alone was worth the price of the journey.
This does not even recount the sights brought to the
eyes of the scenery, the monasteries or the palaces.
The pictures do not do justice to these sights. Breathtaking
does not describe them."
