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
I went through a 2 year research and communication before choosing Satori and its founder Rishi. And it was totally worth it. I received exceptional service at a fair price. The team is very experienced and proficient which is of paramount importance to be able to reach the summit of an 8-thousander. At the same time they offer you the flexibility to choose your own style, tactics and approach in small groups in order to get the maximum of your personal abilities, preferences and the time spent in Nepal. This was especially valid for me having the unconventional idea to snowboard alone from summit to base camp. My experience on Manaslu with Satori was an absolute success and I can t wait to go to the mountains again together.
Going with Satori Adventures was a pleasure on this expedition to the summit of Manaslu in Autumn 2019. The team answered promptly and clearly to all my questions. Organization, logistics, food and a very experienced team during the trekking, at base camp and in higher camps made it ideal to make this a success. Satori Adventures really have good reputation in the word about mountaineering and climbing expedition. They really have such a back up and alternatives to climb safe and successfully. I have only good words and souvenirs, I highly recommend Satori and Entire team.
This was the first time attempting an 8K summit. Apart from the long preparation to it, physical and mental, the month passed on the mountain was out of this world, spending time with other national teams, side to side was a big challenge but at the same time a huge excitement. Satori team have made this period unique, from the day to day activities to all the comforts along the trip (trust me is not easy when you stay for a long time above 4500m. The entire team was friendly and spending time with them was also helpful for the mental state. Now is time to prepare for the next challenge, of course with Satori....stay tuned.
I have done multiple Expeditions including 8000m peaks that have all been organized by Satori Adventures from the beginning on :) There haven been always "solutions" instead of "problems" and it helped the success of all of my trips that I was able to focus on climbing while I had somebody reliable to provide a trustworthy framework. The staff of Satori Adventure are very disciplined and experienced. They always planned and doing there best how to climb the mountain safely and successfully. My next 8000m mountain climbing will be accompanied by Satori adventures in the near future. See you Then!!! Jost
Always a pleasant experience with Satori expeditions. The founder Rishi Bhandari and his staff go out of their way to make sure everything is in place and we have a pleasant, safe experience. I ve stayed in their camps at Everest Base Camp and I m also attempting Mt. Everest with them in spring 2021. I think whoever comes to Satori turns in to a lifetime repeating client. Mr. Mingma Tenji Sherpa is a Profession and Experience team leader, who makes all the difficulty in possible Ways to climb. He is such a dynamic climbing leader that I ever found. Thanks, Rishi and Satori entire team.
Satori adventure Nepal, provides all facilities during our Everest north expedition 2018, services of all staff and of Sherpa was excellent, The owner of the Satori Adventures Mr. Rishi Bhandari made all arrangements perfectly, thanks to Rishi sir and to his team for making and supporting me, my dream of Everest was fulfilled with satori adventure. I am able to summit with safe and successful way because of Satori experience. this company is really profession company. Dreaming of climbing 8,000 meters is not so easy in itself! When you are looking to climb the world s highest mountain, choosing a professional company and an experienced climber Sherpa guide is the main challenge. If you book with Satori Adventure, all you have to do is leave the company and start your training. I wish Satori and entire team all the best for your hard work. Jitesh Modi India
I was a part of Mount Everest North Side expedition of 2019.I could not have asked for better services than provided by Satori and team. Two of our Sherpa s, Mingma Tenzi and Funaru Dai stuck by us like shadows. I owe my safety and success to Satori team. Looking forward to doing more expeditions with them.
This is my second times with Satori services. It was a good experience and very impression with their staff and services. They have co-operate and help us to be safe.
We've just got back from the EBC Three Passes trek with Satori and it was a great adventure! The trip was excellent, well-orginized and unforgetable. We got to sleep in the EBC and it was a great experience. Thank you Rishi fir everything and I hope to go back to Nepal soon!
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!
This was my second trip with Satori, this time to summit Mera Peak. From the very beginning I felt I was in knowledgeable and experienced hands. Rishi‘s communication was quick and his suggestions enriched our tour very much.
The two Sherpa - Rinzee and Lakpa - were very seasoned and had a couple of 8000ers under their belt. Nevertheless they brought a lot of cracking jokes to our little group, choosing excellent lodges and making the whole trip very pleasant.
I am looking forward to booking my next tour with Rishi and Satori the coming year!
Satori adventure Nepal, provides all facilities during our everest north expedition 2018, services of all staff and of sherpa was excellent, Mr rishi bhandari made all arrangements perfectly, thanks to rishi sir and to his team for making and supporting me, my dream of everest was fulfilled with satori adventure, thanks.
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 Sherpa 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.
Very good arrangement and facilities. The food options were superb. I will definitely book more expeditions with Satori.
After an impressive Annapurna Circuit Trek with a side visit to Tilicho Lake that my daughter and I enjoyed four years ago (also organized by Satori Adventures) my next dream was to experience Manaslu Trek.
Rishi and his company provided an excellent guide for Manaslu Trek, Mr M.B.T. Magar, a highly experienced, and one of the most helpful guides I ever met. Despite general time limitations (12 days for trek), uncertain weather, and trekker's tendency to stop often, presumably for photo taking, the trek was an absolute success culminating with the passage of Larkya-La.
I would like to thank the whole team for their great work.
I made in the beginning of March 2017 the Everest trek in eleven days and with one guide who was very kindly and cool, but also very slow and weak and he was a smoker, what is for me the opposide of hiking...
And I did the small Annapurna trek in 4 days (over Poonhill) with a other guide, but with him was it excactly same, like with the first one...
And I did also a Safari in Chitwan, that was very cool to see and do.
Everything I got with the Satori agency, who is very reliable, friendly and in compared not to expensive.
The Satori Company made good and reliable job, but they gave me unfortunately to weak mountain guides.
Best operator in Nepal. Professional and reliable service. Well organized base camp with all required facilities.
This was my third time travelling with Satori Adventures. This time we spent just a few days in Kathmandu and almost two weeks in the magnificent Land of The Thunder Dragon, Bhutan. Mr. Rishi Bhandari organised this amazing trip for us, and as usual, it was a fantastic and flawless experience. I love Nepal and this part of the world and I will continue to go back there. Every time I will go I will travel with Satori, they are a wonderful group of people who I consider to be my friends.
Thank you, Rishi, and all my Nepali friends, for once again making us feel at home in your country!
Best wishes from Canada,
This was my first time using Satori and what a faultless experience it was. Everything was very well organised. The Sherpas were amazing with a huge amount of experience between them. The food was great, they managed to cater for my vegan diet extremely well. All the equipment was of a very high standard. They are very passionate about improving their service as much as they can and when asked for feedback I couldn't think of a single thing I'd change. Looking forward to the next trip already!
