Lobuje and Island Peak solo - Satori knows how to do it!

Moritz W

Great Organisation of the trip, and great support during the journey, considering I was going solo on lobuje and island peak. Satori is very good at figuring out, what their clients need, and providing spot-on services and individualised trips. I met amicable and kind people. The next time I come to Nepal, I will be with Satori again!

Thank you exciting adventures for Satori Nepal and my friend Rishi Bhandari! It was my third time in Nepal, but I learned a lot of new things… again! Your country and indefatigable and fantastic, colourfull

Amazing and worry-free experience

Carmen

We had a unique and worry-free experience on the Manaslu Circuit trek that we completed two weeks ago. All thanks to Rishi and the Satori team. Without them, there would not have been possible. This is the 3rd time we have used Satori Adventure for trekking in the Himalayas, and the service quality was outstanding every time. Highly recommended.

5 stars for a fully amazing EBC trip with Satori

David JoshulaGermany

We had a great experience with Rishi and the entire Satori team trekking to Everest Base Camp. All arrangements up front, arrival in Nepal, accommodation in Kathmandu and during the trip, and any Adhoc support required, were at the highest standards!

A two outstanding highlights:

- Rishi, who was our main point of contact, arranged on short notice a return flight from Lukla to Kathmandu during one of the busiest seasons, something which is not easy to do

- Deepan and Tenzing, our guide and Porter during the trek, were excellent, very proficient in English, knowledgeable and fun to spend time with as we completed our trip

It was a lifetime experience for us, and we look forward to returning to Nepal and working with Satori for future treks and hikes.

Amazing Experience

ShaiIndia

Visited Mt Everest base camp last week via helicopter & it was once in lifetime experience! Suggest staying at Everest view hotel to see the sunrise over Everest.

The pilots & the guides were excellent!

The rest of the stay in Nepal was also superb at excellent hotels with yummy meals.

Rishiji, the polite & ever-smiling owner of this agency, gives that extra personal touch to make the trip hassle-free & unforgettable.

Professional service

Vladmir BelousovRussia

We did Upper Dolpo Trek in Nepal this may, exiting in Phoksundo lake. Satori Adventures provided us with applicable service of airport transfers, permits issuing and guide service on the trek. They helped us with itinerary planning, flight tickets and lodging in Kathmandu in the lovely hotel.

Best local logistics provider in Nepal

Devin GalaUSA

For me selecting a guide/logistics provider for my Everest climb was a big decision. I spent lot of time shopping around and asking ton of questions to company such as Satori and even friends who had climbed Everest in past. Mr Rishi the owner has had an open communication from the very first email I sent him and had answered every single question. He is hands on and gives lot of importance on climbers safety and their needs. Takes good care while you are in Kathmandu!

Satori also has a very very strong Sherpa team, their experience, expertise and decision making is absolutely amazing. Kitchen staff and Head chef took great care while at base camp, made amazing food, I actually ended up gaining weight through out this expedition, which is rare, climbers normally loose around 10-15kgs. One of the climbers on my team required immediate helicopter evacuation from Camp two. With help of lead Sherpa and Rishi we were able to get her evacuated within hours and possibly saving her life.

Base camp facilities were great and super comfortable, with personal tents, clean toilet tents, on-demand hot showers, well stocked dinning tents with various snacks, fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, solar and gas generated power supply. I wish Satori had dome tent for lounging like most other teams but besides that there was no real complaints. Everyone from the Porters to Kitchen Staff to Sherpa team to the owner himself, they all went above and beyond to make this expedition memorable.I was able to safely and successfully climb Lobuche East, Everest and Lhotse with Satori in Spring 2022. I strongly recommend them for Treks and climbs in Nepal.

Annapurna Circuit trekking with Satori

Ioan Mantanelumanta@kabelbw.de

We are a couple from Germany and we’ve been twice in Nepal through Satori Adventure, last time in October 2019.

We were really very content of the whole trip that’s why we want to give a big praise to Rishi and his Team. Perfect Organization, Flexibility, open minded for any kind of wishes .

They take in account small changes in the program at request of the customers and this at very good prices (I researched myself and compared to other service teams). You get for sure best prices through Satori Adventure.

Also at this time we would like to say a great big thank you to all who contributed to this trip.

We wish to the whole team a lot of success and we’re looking forward to the next project with Satori Adventure.

Best regards Nelu Manta

Chulu East peak climbing successfully

Isabel Wrightisabelwright0@gmail.com

I've just returned from an incredible experience climbing Chulu Far East and trekking the Annapurna circuit with Satori. I can t speak highly enough of Rishi and his team at Satori - everything was perfect, from the first email I sent to our last dinner in Kathmandu. Rishi himself is one of the warmest, most kind heated and hard working people I have ever met. He looked after me from start to finish, ensuring my climb ran smoothly even when he wasn t there. He provided full assistance and advice when the climbing conditions changed due to bad weather. Other clients I dined with in Kathmandu confirmed he d done the same with them. When my trek had to finish early due to illness he let me stay in his (beautiful) hotel in Kathmandu, assisted me in getting medical help and stayed in touch with me until I left Nepal. My climbing guide Ongchhu was incredibly professional and experienced, having climbing Everest 3 times (and pretty much every mountain in Nepal!). Not only this but he was, as were my two porters, lovely (and hilarious) company. They felt like close family for the 2 and a half weeks I was with them. I now consider all four of them dear friends and can t wait to return to Nepal to climb with Satori again. I put my full trust in Satori and they delivered beyond I ever expected... I m so grateful and can t wait to return to climb with them again next year. Thank you Rishi mero sathi...

Everest South Face Expedition -2019

Dean Maherdeanmaher84@gmail.com

Another incredible expedition from Satori!

I’ve been using these guys for years and they never fail to impress. Everything ran perfectly. The food at base camp and above was delicious and plentiful. All of the equipment used was of the best quality. Our tents at base camp were enormous with enough room to stand up and walk around in. The Sherpa team are top notch and extremely experienced.

One of the reasons I initially started to use Satori is that the accommodate my vegan diet perfectly and this trip was no exception.

Safety is also of the upmost importance. Not only did we have at least a 1:1 Sherpa support but there was also additional Sherpas on the summit push with additional oxygen ready for any emergency situations, something that not many other companies do. The weather updates we were getting throughout the whole trip were very accurate and seemed to be more reliable than other teams. The owner is also a lovely guy and puts client safety/satisfaction above everything else.

Can’t wait for next year!!

2019 Everest expedition

Sirak Seyoumseeyoum@gmail.com

I have known about Satori since 2016 and finally signed up for this years everest expedition. Dan and Rishi are the best to work with on all aspects of the climb of this magnitude. This company has great leaders along with all the staff they hire from the Sherpas to cooks , base camp accommodations, n helpers you name it they got it covered. I appreciate Dan and Rishi for all the support and guidance they have given me throughout all the stages of my expedition. I am signing up for 2020 North side Everest expedition with them again not only because of the knowledge they both have of the climb logistics etc. but because they actually truly cared for me even after the show is all over. Thanks again guys and see you soon.

Everest from the south 2019

Avtandil Tsintsadzeatsintsadze@hotmail.com

I know this company and Mr .Rishi Bhandari many years. During this time I was in many expeditions and every new expedition is proof of their professionalism . Expedition on Everest was the excellent example. It was absolutely perfect from the very beginning to the end - submitting Everest on 16th of May.

Rishi is absolutely amassing leader, ready to help his clients in any time and any situation. Team of Sherpa , lead by Mingma Temba Sherpa, is one of the best in Himalaya. Same should i say about base camp and kitchen staff.

This year was not simple on Everest , but our expedition went absolutely smoothly, without any problems. thanks to Rishi and his brilliant team. Thank you guys for perfect expedition, wonderful 2 month and summit of Everest. See you next spring

Everest and Lhotse Expedition.

Rickey Singh711ricky@gmail.com

I was part of the Satori Everest/Lhotse Expedition for 2018 and joining Satori was one of the best decisions I made. I was there for 6 weeks and every facet of the expedition was well planned and taken care of by Satori. Climbing Everest is a huge logistical exercise and with Satori everything ran like clockwork. Very smooth and organized expedition. The Sherpas at Satori are vastly experienced and Mingma and Phurba and Dawa and everyone else were great. They were patient and took the time and energy to guide/educate me on the expedition. The base camp experience was a lot better because of Satori and the ground staff and the crew they hired. Absolutely awesome. They delivered everything they promised and some more on top of that. The owner Rishi is attentive and great and stayed in constant touch throughout the expedition and made sure all my needs were met. I would go with Satori again and they sure were the right company for my needs.

There were 10 other climbers besides me on this expedition to Mt Everest and Lhotse and every one of them submitted. There could be no better proof of the efficiency and competence of Satori that they were able to take everyone that signed up to the summit. Highly recommended.

Superlative Lhotse expedition services

Kuntal Joisherkuntalj@gmail.com

Any 8000 meter expedition (in our case we were climbing Lhotse) requires everything from an experienced and a strong Sherpa team, cooks, and other staff at the base camp, reliable and well tested equipment such as tents, ropes, high altitude stoves, wide variety of food selection inclusive of fresh vegetables, and fresh fruits, specialized high altitude food, good base camp facilities such as individual tents, clean and well maintained kitchen, dining, shower, and loo tents for the entire team and staff, brand new oxygen bottles, high quality summit masks and regulators for the climbers and Sherpa guides, a comfortable and luxury trek in and out of the base camp, and above all a strong ground operation in Kathmandu that takes care of all government formalities and paperwork, and is available to organize rescues incase of emergencies on the mountain.

Rishi and Satori adventures provided every single thing from the above list, and they went above and beyond all expectations. 5 out 5 (i.e. 100%) members made it to the top of Mt. Lhotse and made it back down safe and sound. A big part of this success is due to the Satori adventures' team and organization both on and off the mountain. Rishi as the CEO of Satori adventures provided us full support throughout our Everest climb. Rishi understands how to run a big mountain expedition and deeply cares for the success and safety of all expedition members. One of the climbers on my team required immediate helicopter evacuation from Camp two, and Rishi organized that without any delay.

If you are looking to climb Everest or any of the other 8000 meter mountains in Nepal or Tibet, I would highly recommend that you go with Satori adventures. And if you are looking to do any trekking or climbing a 6000 meter or a 7000 meter mountain I would again recommend to climb with Rishi and his team. I have now been on four 8000 meter mountain expeditions and three 6000 meter mountain expedition with Rishi and his team and I have no complaints at all. Every single aspect of the expedition is very well taken care of. Strongly recommended!

I climbed the 8, 8000M Mountain safely and successfully with Satori Adventures after my retirement.

Matsumoto Tatsuotmatsumoto995@gmail.com

We participated in a mountaineering expedition to Mt. Lhotse (Fifth highest mountain in the world) arranged by Satori Adventures. The trip started with completing the Everest Base camp trek to Lobuche village, and climb Lobuche east as a training and acclimatization before reaching at Lhotse Base camp. We got 100% successful in our team. Summit from our team, but I had to turn around 300 meters before the summit. This is my last 8000M Mountain expedition which I climbed in age of 79 years safe and successfully.

Satori arranged all of the logistics of the trip excellently. As always, some occasional adjustments to the trekking plan had to be made, and my guides Mr. Peama Sherpa handled the arrangements promptly. I have climbed eight, 8000M Mountain with Satori adventures. I climb Mount. Everest, Mount Makalu, Mount Kanchanjungha, Mount Annapurna, Mount K2, Mount Cho-Oyu, Mount Shishapangma and Mount Manaslu after i retired age of 70 years. All my expedition was operated by Mr. Rishi Bhandari the Owner of Satori adventures and climbing Sherpa guide Mr. Pema sherpa. I have climbed all mountains safe and successfully except i fail to summit Makalu in 2015 first time because of Earthquake and need to return again in 2016 for successful summit.

All the base camp and high camp arrangements was very comfortable, featuring a dining tent, a cooking tent, and a shower tent. Unlimited tea and snacks was available in the dining tent at all times. The three daily meals were prepared by a very skilled cook, and the menu was varying food. Almost new three-person tents were used for accommodation.

I had ordered a full service package all the mountains and personal climbing sherpa guide. The Sherpa guides carried up the food to the high camps, and even my personal items. In the high camps the Sherpas supplied us with boiled water and were otherwise also very helpful. We planned the summit push with our sherpas, who set a personalized summit schedule for our group. Many of the Sherpa guides knew English pretty well, and some of them even told that they were taking English courses during their free months.

All in all, Satori Adventures had very convincing logistics for all my 8000m expedition. This is the main reason i returned again and again with them and summit my entire planned mountain safe and successfully. I would recommend all the mountain lovers to contact Mr. Rishi and Satori adventures to make your dreams comes true.

I have climbed six eight thousand meter mountains safe and successfully with Satori organization

Mansikka Samuel Finland

I would like to highly recommend Satori Adventures to anyone who wants to book high mountain expedition including all 8000M peaks in Nepal, Tibet and Pakistan. I had used Satori adventure service for My Lhotse, Annapurna, Manaslu, Kanchanjungha, Cho-Oyu expeditions and I never need to see behind myself again.

There are few words to say about the service of Satori adventures in the way they work as much as they have worked hard in difficult condition. assured of fantastic service, good price and great possibility to reach you goal. I have no complaints only great pleasure staying with team friends. All the support staff were amazing, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and professional Leader Guide. Mingma Temba and Mingma Tenji were really profession expedition leader, who have 10 and 12 times of Everest summit experience including other 8, 8000m mountain.

The kitchen chef, worked hard to give us great variety so the food never became boring, Bibek, the sirdar, fantastical guy, always did his best, try to solve all problems and make our expedition safe and successful as possible. I‘m sure, Nepal is safe and waiting for you as never, so make a contact with Rishi, managing director of Satori Adventures, and he will take care of you, making your dreams real.

Successes and happiness of climbing mountains in Nepalcent of Putha

Luca Montanarilucamontanari.guidaalpina@gmail.com

I had started to work with Rishi and Satori team since 2011 and climbed a few 6000m trekking peaks, 7000M peak, and 8000M expedition. That means I had repeated my client and my self all Nepal expedition with satori because they have Personalized and Professional Service, Young & experience Local Experts, Affordable, Flexible with No Hidden Cost, Financial Security & Guarantee of the trip, Authenticity operators, Experience and Professional Staffs, Responsible agency and the main course is that I worked with them as a family member because they have a friendly environment.

The team is super-professional in terms of trip administration, trip logistics, and Sherpa’s experience with high altitude mountaineering. Sherpas are very dedicated and taking great care of their customers. I am a UIAGM mountain guide myself but Satori Sherpa guides watch closely the customers’ physical condition and readiness to make a final push. The owner of the company Mr. Rishi Bhandari has a profound experience with organizing teams and is very straightforward with the pricing and other details, no hidden fees and tricks. As a result, our all expedition was flawless, and we did not hesitate to contract with this company again and again for any expedition or Himalayas trip in Nepal. I have climbed Ama Dablam, Cho-Oyu, Manaslu, Putha Hiunchuli, Gyajikhang, Everest south safe and successfully. Most members of the Satori international team also summit when they were in our team too. Spring 2021 we are going to summit Everest south face with my customer and of course with Satori adventures.

If you are planning to climb any mountain in the Himalayas peaks then, please contact Satori adventures where you will never be unsafe or fail!

Although adventure is free of cost, Safety matter thus it cost.

Sandrine Poddacostetsand@hotmail.com

I have known about Satori and Rishi Bhandari since end of 2017 and finally signed up for this years Putha Hiunchuli (first 7000M expedition) for myself and my mother.My mother and I wanted to do 7,000 mountain climbs together from a skilled and experienced climbing organization.

I saw the service and skill of Satori adventure up close last year when I climbed Ama Dablam Himal with different company. I started sharing information and email with Satori adventures two years ago. Rishi Bhandari, who is the director of The Company, gave a clear and informative information in a very disciplined manner with sincerity from which I was very much impressed. I knew the value of money. When I bought my package, there were only 3 people conformed, but Rishi said that I would take less money if we had 5-6 members on the team. FInally we were 6 climbers on team and Satori agreed to take less in the agreed amount.

Rishi are the best to work with on all aspects of the climb of this magnitude. This company has great leaders along with all the staff they hire from the Sherpa's to cooks , base camp accommodations, n helpers you name it they got it covered. I appreciate Satori Adventures and Rishi for all the support and guidance they have given me throughout all the stages of my expedition. I am planning for another 8000m Manaslu or Cho-Oyu with them again not only because of the knowledge they they have of the climb logistics etc. but because they actually truly cared for me and my mother even after the show is all over.

Thanks again Satori Team and see you soon.

Summit Mount Manaslu With Ski

best life time experience with Satori in my first 8000M expedition

Anthony MarraAnthbmarra@gmail.com

I spent 3 months in Nepal skiing an 8000m peak, trail running some of the popular circuits and trekking on the side. Logistics for my trip were incredibly complicated and I was very independent. However, much help was needed from Rishi and his team to ensure I was comfortable, safe and on the right track. I was very happy to use the services of Satori in my first 8000m Expedition. Very impressed by Rishi s knowledge of the permit system and beyond. I did Manaslu summit and Sky from summit to Base camp. It was really my life time experience. The base camp service was excellent. the food was so nice at base camp. Highly recommended if you plan to do anything mountain related in Nepal and want a good experience. Thank you so much Satori
