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
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...
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!!
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.
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
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.
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!
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 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. Rishi works hard and is very committed to making everyone s holiday the best. Thank you Satori team, good luck and hope to see you again.
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!
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.
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.
