Once I visited the Himalayas, I saw the Ama Dablam from 5073m, I took a scenic ultralight flight to the Annapurna Range and since then I can't live far away from them. I moved from Kyiv to Kathmandu and found myself in a locally-owned travel project Swotah Travel and Adventure which is committed to promoting sustainable and responsible tourism.
We share a belief that a journey into the Himalayas is a journey into oneself (can't agree more) and our idea is to share the love of the mountains in a way it creates a balance between nature, culture, adventurers and locals.
I do understand that coming to Nepal is once in a lifetime thing that is why I aim to make this adventure your best one!
Once you come with us, you'll come to us again because once is not enough in the case of Nepal.
