Satori Adventures was contracted by my climbing team in fall. I climbed and use Satori for my Service in Shishapangma, Everest Expedition and Yala and Naya Kanga peak. The whole crew worked extremely diligent on the mountain, did every job at their best effort and the highest quality. After the climbing trip, for some reason, I had to stay in Nepal alone for several days and had a lot of trouble with visa and airlines. Rishi and his team went out of their way to help me sort out the mess. They took good care of me during those days, made me feel home that I almost didn't want to leave!
I recently traveled and Climb Cho-Oyu Expedition with Satori Adventures and was extremely impressed with their logistics and attention to detail. Even during some of the worst condition in years in Nepal, our trip was great, in no small part to the guides, porters and leaders at Satori adventures. They are true professionals, not to mention genuinely honest and great people, who provide a service that is second to none. If you travel with them, you will not be disappointed.
Satori Adventures was the best trekking and Expedition Company in Nepal. They did a great job of setting up a trip for just us two climbers. When we email to the Company The managing Director Rishi Bhandari did a quick response. The staffs of all fields are experience and qualification.
During the expedition our guides: Lakhpa and Dawa , Cook Anup, PORTERS, Preeti, Mankumari and pasang) Dawa and Lakpa were excellent in their climbing, Solicitous and caring. Rishi was very co-operative and flexiable and set up a great schedule for us taking our inputs.
I would recommend Satori Adventures highly.
While we were in Nepal for a conference and wanted to organize a quick helicopter trip to Everest base Camp. The manager of Satori Adventures was Rishi who organized a heli trip with a very experienced heli crew up to Lukla, Hotel Everest View and to an advanced point near base camp. We enjoyed ourself by watching the clear view of Everest and the surrounding peaks. On our request Rishi organized a quick half day tour to fill in our day in Kathmandu.
I highly recommend Satori Adventures for the Nepal Tour.
We planned to go to spend our holidays in Nepal but we don’t have any idea to whom we contact. We searched in the Google and we email too many companies but Satori Adventures managing Director Rishi replied as soon as. Rishi helped us with our booking, and he was one of the most helpful and professional people that I have dealt with in this industry. I booked a trip to Chitwan National Park with Satori Adventures.
The staff of this company was very professional and experienced. I was very impressed with the hotel and guide that Satori Adventures booked for us at Chitwan National Park. It turned out to be the best part of our holiday. The hotel was beautiful and clean.
I want to recommend to Satori Advenutes for those who want to go to Nepal trip.
When we planned to Climb Lobuche East Peak in the Internet we found Satori Adventures. After arriving at Kathmandu Airport we have been welcomed by the representative of Satori Adventures. We transfer to the Hotel. During our climbing and trekking we had an Experienced and professional Climbing Sherpa as we expected and he do his best for us.Our porters took a good care of our duffle bags. Rishi, Managing director of Satori Advenutes was always answering t our multiple emails in a really fast time. Due to altitude sickness, we had to change our itinerary, and it hasn't been complicated at all.
When we go back to Nepal again we will go with Satori Adventures and also we recommend
Rishi, the Managing director of Satori Adventures responded promptly to our booking requests. He showed a great willingness to accommodate the wishes of me and my friend travelling alone. In Kathmandu he personally escorted us to the bus to Pokhara and was always contactable 24/7 if we had any concerns. Satori Adventures operates us Gorepani Poon Hill Trekking, we had a ladies guide and porter who were very experience and professional. They were always smiling. We got the fantastic and life time experienced of Himalayas.
After this trekking we move towards Chitwan National Park for 2 night and three days which makes relief from the tired of trekking.

While we are planning to go to Nepal for Classic trip, at that time we found the Satori Adventures. They guided us everything, enough to say that everything was great from the first till the last day.while there was delayed flights to /from Lukla at that time Rishi and his staffs arrange the Helicopter or the accommodation and equipment on the way, up to safety en route. Well, Rishi and his Team made sure that all this went well, and nothing was left unattended. What was especially important for me is that Rishi loves mountains and is an experienced trekker himself, plus, all what he promised and all what we agreed prior to the trip, was provided and taken care of respectively. I can recommend Satori Adventures, and I will call Rishi again, next time I plan my trip to Himalaya

When I travel first time in Nepal, I was a little nervous about how the trip would all turn out. Whether the accommodation would be good, if my guide would be friendly, and the general logistics of the itinerary or not? When I met the driver in Airport he took me to the hotel, I felt comfortable and never felt the need to worry about what is going to happen next.
During the trek the guide was very knowledgeable and fun; he always makes me entertained for the trekking days with a smile on his face. The food was very tasty and I was always offered more at each of the night spots. They even took me and another person, who had just finished her 15 day trek, for a nice meal on my last night in Nepal to say thank you and to ask how everything went. The hotel that they put me up in for the first and last night was a nice welcome and a much needed cleanse for the respective days.
All in all, I would definitely recommend using Satori Advenutures as they will take care of eveything and do all they can to make it the best experience possible. I'm sure when I get some time off I'll be contacting Rishi for another adventure.

This is my third trek with Satori Adventures and a very eventful one as 2 of my friends required helicopter evacuation one day after another. Rishi the Managing Director flew in together with helicopter rescue to make sure that my friend was ok. On both occasions, the Helicopter arrived speedily and hospital admission and procedures were efficiently processed.
During the short lived trek, all of us were well looked after. The service cannot be faulted.
The guide Ganga and Rishi are no longer just service providers but welcoming friends - both very generous and big hearted.

I engaged Satori Adventures for my Nepal trip during Oct/Nov. I'm very satisfied with their services especially during our 16-days trek to Mount Everest Base Camp via Gokyo & Cho-la pass. It is a memorable experience for me. Rishi had been patient & professional in helping us with city tour at Kathmandu, Pokhara, Lumbini & Chitwan; ensuring that everything runs smoothly.
I'm impressed by the services provided during the trekking. The trekking guide & the porter had been most helpful and supportive as well during this period. I strongly recommend Satori Adventures for trekking and Nepal tour.
Thank you very much for all the arrangements, making my trip to Nepal a memorable one!

Satori Adventures was the organizer of our Annapurna Circuit Trekking. We had heard that the Annapurna circuit had be ruined by the new road, but Satori Adventures managed to minimize the use of them and the views are still spectacular. We are glad we weren't put off from doing the Annapurna circuit. Our guide Krishna was fantastic, as was our porter Raj, they both helped make our holiday unforgettable. Krishna always found the great places to stay and eat. We were still in the mountains when the earth quake hit Nepal and Rishi did a good job of communicating with our families as we finished our holiday. It was a great holiday, a great trek with guys we will never forget.

Satori Adventures was an organizer of my first expedition on a mountain of 8000 meters and I was more satisfied than I expected. Rishi and was very professional and he was a great help in the organization. He answered clearly and quickly to all my questions throughout the preceding month of the expedition. Once visited Nepal, he was very dedicated to ensure the smooth running and success of our expedition.
As expedition leader, Rishi supported me in all of the procedures for obtaining the permit ascension allowed by the Ministry of Tourism.
Regarding the team, all were sympatiques, dedicated and highly professional (Office staffs,Climbing Sherpa,Cook.). Mingma, the Sirdar of the expedition was exceptional for its expertise in mountain and its ability to manage logistics.
Regarding the food, we ate very well during the 35 days of the expedition, which was great for the morale of the whole team. No one in the team has been sick because of food even during the trek which is very important in the success of an expedition of this kind.
In fact, all the elements in place by Satori Adventures contributed to the success of our expedition. All team members have reached the summit. I am very pleased with my experience with Satori Adventures and I solicit again to organize a trekking expedition when I go back to Nepal, for sure!
Satori Adventures is one of the most professional trekking and expedition company in Nepal. They have a lot of experience and a great team which is helping you from the beginning to the end in a very prompt way. Once you try their service you will sure come again to Nepal with the same company. Thank you very much for Rishi and his staffs for a life time Experience of Trekking.
Rishi and the staff at Satori were absolutely great! they went an extra mile to help us successfully complete and enjoy our 3 weeks trek to the Everest Region. Highly recommended! Visited November 2011
