EBC/Kala Patthar/ Lobuche east expedition

bhumikajainFremont, California

Satori Adventures was the outfitters I chose for my EBC and Lobuche east expedition and i am really happy with the professionalism and the services they provided. Starting from arrival in Kathmandu to departure from Kathmandu, this team took care of everything. This was my first time in Nepal and first expedition in Himalayas, and Rishi and team made sure that my first trip to Himalayas becomes memorable.. I was very much impressed with the leader and main guide of the team Mingma Dai( Mingma Tenzing Sherpa), amazing personality with such a kind, calm and positive attitude. He was highly professional in his manners.He not even once got irritated with our frequent stupid questions on the trail and very patiently answered all the questions.Everyday he would inquire about our health and would take care of everything that we needed.Other team members were also great. Rinji and Mingma bahini took very good care of us on the trail. Anoop Dai was the awesomest cook at the high camp. Also he was my Sherpa who never left my side during the climb.Porters were amazing. They were the powerhouse of the team. I was amazed to see them carrying 50 kg effortlessly when I was huffing and puffing with my daypack.

Overall,I am super happy with the team and services they provided and would definitely consider Satori adventures for my future expeditions.Also I highly recommend this team if you are looking for an outstanding experience in Nepal.Keep up the good work Team Satori!!

Everest Base Camp expedition

Yogesh SMumbai, India

We participated in the Everest base camp expedition from 15-24 th march from Kathmandu to EBC and back and it was an awesome experience. We had an excellent hospitality by Satori team including Leaders Kuntal Joisher who is an Everest climbed and Mingma Tenzi Sherpa another legend who had made sure that we are fed well and hydrated throughout the trip .

I would like to come again next year same time with few friends of mine to Join Satori team.

"Everest Base Camp Trek - Walk with Kuntal & Migma, Organized, Planned & Executed by Mr. Rishi - Satori Adventures"

Maulik CMumbai (Bombay), India

Nine of us embarked on this once in a life time trek with Satori Adventures Company. The trek was very well planned. The trek leader Kuntal Joisher & Mingma Tenzi Sherpa were the heroes of such a trip, difficult to find faults with them. Places chosen for stay ie. the Lodges & halts were excellent, so was the food available in those places. I would recommend this company because it takes care of planning leaving participants to enjoy hassle free treks. We were extremely impressed with Hiking professionalism with organising the trek and making the whole experience never to forget. Satori was also were very helpful in managing the last minute changes as well and getting us evacuted in chopper during snow storm. Guides and guiding companies are not all the same. The differences lie with the people and their attitudes. Being positive and passionate about their work and the success of their clients is what distinguishes one company from another. It was my personal experience, and what I heard from the others in my group, that sets Satori & Mr. Rishi apart. He made it his business to pay attention to the small things/arrangements that not only makes for a good trek trip, but can make the difference between success and failure. Most important, leaders were positive and fun to be with. Team work and team spirit was the priority with excellent team leaders who were always there to support us. Namaste !!!

Great service

Hiral S

We did everest base camp trek in Nepal with Satori and had an amazing experience. Rishiji,the owner met us personally and took us for a pre as well as post trek dinner at an amazing Japanese restaurant. Bibek our guide and Sunam, our psuedo guide were super helpful throughout the trip and their energy levels were commendable even after a tough day trekking. Would definitely suggest Satori to anyone wanting to explore Nepal through its numerous treks.

Fantastic time in Nepal !

Sane-MadmanPortland, Oregon

We took a month long expedition to Nepal with my climbing partners. Main goal was climbing the majestic Ama Dablam. Rishi and the entire crew of the Satori adventure worked hard to make sure everything was going through smoothly from beginning to end; this entailed everything from permits, airport pick ups to treks, base camp services, climbs. I highly recommend their services and will for sure go back to the Himalayas!

Excellent trekking and mountaineering trip in Khumbu region

Kim D

We participated in a mountaineering expedition to mt. Ama Dablam arranged by Satori Adventures. The trip started with completing the Everest Basecamp trek to Gorakshep village, and hiking up Kala Patthar. As the second part of the trip we set to climb Ama Dablam. We got a successful summit from our team, but I had to turn around 300 meters before the summit.

Satori arranged all of the logistics of the trip excellently. As always, some occasional adjustments to the trekking plan had to be made, and our guides handled the arrangements promptly. We had also some mild cases of illness, but the Satori staff rearranged the schedule to let us recover.

The Ama Dablam Base Camp was the central stage in the mountaineering part of our trip. The basecamp 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 from chiken on a sizzling plate to local momos. Almost new three-person tents were used for accommodation.

We had ordered a full service package, so similar three-person tents were ready set up for us in the high camps. The Sherpa guides carried up the food to the high camps, and even a few of our 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 our expedition. The basecamp was very comfortable, and it was obvious that they put attention to detail when managing the expedition. Even while the Sherpas guide you along the entire route, I would still recommend that one knows the basic mountaineering techniques when going on an expedition like this.

Annapurna base Camp trip

ajaykumar168Mumbai (Bombay), India

had a awesome trip with Rishi / Satori. apart from taking care of all our requirements, they even adjusted out itinerary based on our daily trek. This is my second trek with them (Everest base camp being the firs tone) and pretty happy about it

Great Himalaya Trail

ivvi129Moscow, Russia

Since 2011 every year I had been helped by Rishi in all mine journeys to Nepal. During mine last 7 visits I finally completed GHT. This year it was a section of 700km through mountains on Far West. And all logistics, documents and crew issues was successfuly handled with friendly and professional assistance of director of Satori Adventures. Real personal envolvment of crew in any issues which a traveller may face during Himalayas trips!

Ama Dablam expedition


Satori Adventures organise me and my friends Ama Dablam expedition in autumn 2016. We had good service from planning to end of the expedition and in addition Rishi reacted immediately to our inqueries while at the mountains. Sherpa team was young in general but very experienced. Camp service in basecamp and higher camps were exceptional and we had the best high altitude cook in our basecamp! Really enjoy my time with Satori Adventures and will highly recommend their trekking and expedition services.

ABC trip

Visit to Heavens

Avtandil T

From my very first trip to Nepal in 2013, I was so lucky to met Rishi and his team. Always friendly and very helpful in any situation. Climbing 8000 peaks, you need a very special support and excellent organisation. All this I got from Satori Adventures. Personally from Rishi , Minmatemba Sherpa and many others from this perfect team.

And as a result - successful climb of Manaslu this fall. Can not wait to be back next spring.

I strongly recommend to join this company to visit Nepal with any kind of adventure. You will feel like you are with old time friends.

beautiful journey!

TommiCo84Padua, Italy

We did a very nice trek last winter, reaching the Everest base camp, then crossing Cho-La pass and return from the valley of Gokyo. Rishi has planned everything very well, welcoming and greetings us like brothers. Our guide Pema sherpa, perfectly knew the territory, and also the customs, the mountains and local flora and fauna. Has always been kind to please our schedule changes, where possible, also visiting other destinations. Thanks to all the team of Satori Adventures! We hope to return soon!

Excellent et valuable team for your Nepal climbings

Everest expedition- just perfect!

Kuntal JMumbai, India

A successful Everest expedition needs 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. 6 out of 7 members made it to the top of Mt. Everest and made it back down alive. 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. Two 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 three 8000 meter mountain expeditions and one 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. Highly Highly Highly recommended!

Everest Base Camp -- Wow!

jlblack176Springfield, Missouri

My recent trek to Everest Base Camp was a success thanks to Satori Adventures and Expeditions. Dan Nash and Daniela Liscio (Eat For Sport) prepared me well for the trek and Rishi Bhandari made a logistical nightmare look like a piece of cake. Our guide Rupkaji Thapa Magar knew the area quite well and our porter Jiban Rana Magar made it easy. What a team!

On a scale of 1-10 these guys rate a 12!
