Swotah travel has organized for me a wonderful trip to discover Nepal. Kathmandu + trekking to Everest base camp. The guide who assisted me, Chandra, was amazing, made my vacation unique. I highly recommend this tour operator.

Ajay helped organize a helicopter tour for 15 of us from Kathmandu to Everest and back. It was simply magnificent, and he took care of EVERYTHING. Really made the process super seamless for us. I would really highly recommend using Ajay to help you plan your Nepal adventure. Based on all the other experiences people in our group had with other travel companies (many of which were also great), Ajay is clearly among the very best in the business. Give him a shout!

2 years ago we already wanted to visit Nepal and the Himalaya. At that time we decided to organize the trip through swotahtravel.com, as I was introduced to Ajay in Berlin some years ago. After Ajay had clarified our interests, it quickly became clear that we intended to climb two 6000m peaks. Island Peak and Lobuche East. The trip was perfectly organized. Unfortunately, covid slowed us down on the original day of departure, but the dream lived on and contact with AJ didn't break off. In March 2022 our time had come. After weeks of sporting preparations, we were on our way to Nepal. The greeting at the airport was sensational. The next day the final organizational things for the mountains were made and the last equipment was bought in Thamel. Now we finally went to Lukla, accompanied by Ajay. From there we hiked several days in the direction of Island Peak. On the way we always had the perfect accommodation with the best service every day. Our team also worked without any problems. Our two strong porters Nima & Lekh were always courteous and did a great job. Finally, Pasang Dawa Sherpa joined us as our climbing Sherpa, so we were in the best hands. This 23-time Everest climber is truly an impressive person. Ajay, Padawa, Nima & Lekh greeted us every morning with positive vibes. Spectacular mountains and lots of fun were guaranteed day by day. In the end we were able to fulfill our dream and reached both planned summits within 4 days and without any bigger problems. Thanks to Padawa and AJ, we had ideal conditions for success here, both in the base camp and on the mountain itself. The moments on the windless peaks under the blue sky remain unforgettable. The walk back to Lukla went smoothly. The accommodation and the rest day in Namche Bazar will also remain in my memories, as we were able to listen to many stories of locals and gain deep insights into the life and culture of the Sherpa. Flights to and from Lukla remain something special. But when we arrived in Kathmandu, Ajay picked a great hotel for us again. After we had left the mountains behind us, a few days of city, culture and nightlife were ahead of us, including a 2-day-trip to Pokhara. That rounded off this trip perfectly. What remains in the end are memories of a spectacular time in the mountains, but also the memories of the lovely, hospitable people in this beautiful country. Ajay was the best tour guide imaginable. He has always made the impossible possible and removed all obstacles with his positive nature. This was definitely not my last visit to Nepal and next time I will definitely go with Swotah Travel again. 5 stars and thanks for the best 4 weeks of my life.

It's Torsten writing this (AJ will redirect you for sure if you'd like to talk to me in person). So the whole thing started with Claudius 40th birthday getting a 4 weeks off family present (how tempting this is ?). His always dream was for a high tour in Himalayas, which I somewhat already had, Lahaul + Spiti + Sikkim, along with my Indian friends. Called up on that birthday (we're 8 hrs apart) .. telling me the story .. I replied on immediately "call me in". On top, Claudius got to know Ajay via a friend before, also, via ITB. The plan was set, thourougly set up for Mar 2020. At last minute before airplane takeoff, after 4 hrs of constant video calls forth and back with Ajay, this had to be cancelled as for no future. That was both rationally and emotionally terrible, for all of us. We kept constant forth and back about possible dates and still there was no good base until we decided for a poker game back in fall 2021. Now that we won the poker game, it's about a team, the buddy you are travelling with, the guide that tells you the whereabouts and whatabouts, introduced us to our porters, Nima + Lekh (in alphabetical order). To make a long story straight, they carried our bulk load and eventually made us us summit. These guys were strong, barely english talking, however I hope they are fine. Yes, of course, they got tipped whatever is good. It was too sad one couldn't learn there inner views. So here, aside of all the ovens we shared, dhyanyabad to you guys, you were key (glad to meet to next time). Claudius is eager, and cautious. In that order. So .. surprises ahead. It's fine. Aj looks for socialism. Gr8. I felt very well in that team. Padawa came in, certainly the most important figure ? Without him one cannot even dare to climb starting midnight, or shortly after ? So one sits an Padawa's home and he knows you from the afternoon climb. He just knows how you step climbs or the stairs of your house. You cannot trust more than this. He's your life insurance at top. When you come to straight rock, Padawa watches what your skills are for, helps you, forces you, he's smart, and keeps you pushing, he won't let go if your're too weak. The most of the time we spent walking up + down in AJ's company - without any exaggeration this was just heaven on earth. We shared soo many moments that will last. The strongest moment I felt on the plateau between Pangboche and Dingboche, AJ playing classic music and conducted the orchestra with his walking sticks. Thanks ! is a small word for the memories experienced, it's rather a start. The whole trip felt like one entire blast ! From the bottom of my heart, Torsten

Swotah arranged our trip to Nepal to include Katmandu sightseeing, rafting, and the Poon Hill Circuit trek of Annapurna. They did a great job arranging everything. Best of all they arranged for the greatest guides. Chandra was an excellent guide for Katmandu. RajKumar, Bibek, and Binod were amazing. They not only safely guided us through the trails but shared their culture and proactively sought to meet our needs. I highly recommend them. When our return flight to Katmandu was delayed by a day, Swotah administrators and RajKumar jumped into action to help us arrange for transport, another night in the hotel, and guided us through booking a new flight.
