Reliable en effective agency

martindegraafAmersfoort, The Netherlands

It was a pleasure to deal with Satori, while planning and preparing for our two-weeks trip to Tibet. Communication was fast and efficient and covered any aspect. Every aspect of the trip was well arranged: flights, car, guide, accommodation. No hassles about changing prices, and in fact extra services at no cost.

Overall costs were highly competitive and much lower than woudl have been the case if the same trip would have been booked through a European agency.

Highly recommended for a trip to and within Tibet.

Winter Solo Gokyo-Ri, Jan 2016

LaboLaboKuala Lumpur, Malaysia

A very pleasant visit to Gokyo-ri, minus the crowd. The organizer had arranged for me a very good English speaking guide, very experienced and familiar with the trek, also knowledgeable in Nepal's history and geography. He knows I like to see wild animals, and he would look out and alert me. So we spotted 3 really big mountain goats crossing the trail in front of us, took great pictures, and I really appreciate that!

Satori Adventures - My Family Away From Home!

Camelia LOakville, Canada

I’ve travelled to Nepal twice. Once in 2011, when, along with friends from Canada and Romania, we trekked the wonderful Annapurna Circuit. Second time it was in 2013, when, with a small group of friends, we trekked to Everest Base Camp. Both were amazing adventures, excellently organized by Mr. Rishi Bhandari and the wonderful team at Satori Adventures. The level of service exceeded our expectation and was greatly appreciated!

Rishi and his team became our friends and we've remained in touch ever since. I warmly recommend them to anyone who wants to travel to Nepal. They are very professional, will accommodate all your needs and they feel like family. I consider them my family away from home.

Rishi, the painting that you so nicely gave to me as a present is hanging in my bedroom and it reminds me every day of Himalayas, of you and all my Nepali friends.

Greetings from Canada!

Namaste,

My requests where all completly taken care of - it was a very nice experince - I felt I can trust this Company!

Excellent EBC Gokyo Chola trekking

Wischalee SBangkok, Thailand

This is the 3rd time visit Nepal for trekking and also the 3rd time I use the service from Rishi. He provide quick response for all inquiries and very well organised for our trip. Satori Adventure's team was extremely helpful and professional. The success of this trip for all my group (15people) came from their support.

The borrowed equipment (Down jacket, duffle bag and down sleeping bag) were cleaned and working well during trekking.

They provide unexpected service that we did not aware of it; Visiting the camp at EBC and offering to stay the the base camp are very impressive services that we did not expect before.

Highly recommend to all and look forward to using again on my next trip.

excellent trekking and mountaineering trip94

Excellent trekking and mountaineering trip

Kim-Karol Michael DikertFinland

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.

A nice climbing and a superb scenery in an isloated place

Daniel Boulensalineboulens@gmail.com

We climbed Himlung Himal few years ago at spring period. This mountain, more 7000 m is quite accessible. The major interest is the full trail . The "Phu" vallay is so nice and people are very friendly. After Phu, you are in the "wild" only with ibex. The advanced base camp is very nice to have a rest in a gorgeous landscape. When we climbed this mountain, there was only one other group which didn t succeed. With our team, we had to find the good way in big crevasses. There are no major danger (crevasses or avalanche). On short difficult passage is nearly 6000 m, there is a big crevasse. Above this part, there are regular and gentle slopes. Camp Nr 3 is approximatively 6400m. Don t under estimate the last day to reach the summit. It is not difficult, but a long way and the final slope is in good condition. From the top the view is extraordinary on Manaslu and Annapurna and Tibet. At spring season, you need to start from camp 3 at 2 or 3:00 am, because it is very usual that the clouds come at the end of the morning. I encourage all of you the climb this mountain with Satori and Rishi Bandari. His team is very professionnal and efficient. We did many trek and summit (like Mera Peak). This summit is realy appropriated for not experineced climbers. A good step before going higher and further on the more difficult summits. And top of all, the palce is wild and not crowded! I encourage everybody to do this ascent (with a little bit training before).

Every single aspect of the expedition is very well taken care of

Kuntal Ajit JoisherMumbai 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 in case 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!

Great trip

Tim and Beckytimwillson8@hotmail.com

We had a great time on the EBC trek supported by Rishi and his team from Satori adventures. We had booked because of Rishi’s reputation as a great organizer and most welcoming host. He certainly lived up to this! We were very impressed by the trek crew who were cheerful and friendly and ran an excellent and tasty base camp on our climb. Point to note, trekkers summit of Lobuche East is actually about 5900m.

Excellent expedition operators in Nepal

Robertes Noreika Vilnius, Lithuania

I would like to highly recommend Satori Adventures to anyone who wants to book high Himalayan expedition. I had booked Ama Dablam expedition and be assured of fantastic service, good price and great possibility to reach you goal. I had summated Cho Oyu expedition with Satori arrangements and have recently returned from Ama Dablam spring expedition. Unfortunately, natural disaster, a terrible earthquake and bad weather, did not allow us to complete expedition successfully, but even in that situation Rishi Bhandari managed organized expedition according itinerary, including summiting Island Peak, comfortable staying in Ama Dalam base camp and camp I. I have no complaints only great pleasure staying with team friends. All the support staff was amazing, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Ngima Tamang, 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, tries 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 the company. I am sure that he will take care of you, making your dreams real. Rishi works hard and is very committed to making everyone's holiday the best.
