Satori Adventures is the best host for any activities in Nepal! We utilized their knowledge and experience in organizing high-altitude expedition for a part of our group. For another part of our team, they managed to provide an incredible hike to the base camp of mt Everest and accommodate all the needs and urgent situantions on that trip. Definitely highly recommended guides in Nepal!
One of the most reputed and well managed agencies. The owner Mr Rishi is a true gentleman and knows the pulse of the mountains. His team his flexibility when it comes to management is truly exceptional. I definitely recommend Satori Adventures for any Himalayan trek and expedition
Super awesome experience...can't expect better services at 18000 feet...Excellent fooding, stay in the best of properties, super backing up by experts all round the clock....
All in one memories for life...Thank you Satori Adventures and Rishi bhai for these everlasting memoriam...
Satori Adventures is the best tour operator I have worked with in Nepal. Always great service and good prices. My first choice for my adventures in Nepal!
We had been for long contemplating going for trek in Himalayas – particularly in Everest Base Camp (EBC) region with stay at famous Hotel Everest View at 3,880 meters. Considering our age (70 +) we were not sure whether we can do this trip or not.
Thankfully, we were introduced to Mr. Rishi Bhandari of Satori Adventures by an avid mountaineer. Rishiji met us in person in Mumbai, India to understand our plans and in due course of time he suggested a program which can take care of all our desires keeping in mind our age.
Rishiji’s special emphasis was on our doing the trek at leisurely speed unlike other young trekkers with overnight halts at Phakding, then at Monjo and then 2 nights at Namche Bazaar to ensure that we are properly acclimatized before we proceed to Hotel Everest View and then take a copter ride to EBC & Kala Pathhar.
On completing our trip and returning we realised why there was a need at our age to take halts at Phakding & Monjo and also why 2 nights acclimatizing is required/ must at Namche Bazaar.
Rishiji also gave us an experienced guide Mohan and a porter to carry our luggage. And to add to our comforts he also deployed one additional porter Subhash who carried a 60 liters oxygen supply cylinder in case of emergency. Both Mohan and Subhash all through till HEV walked along with us to ensure lending support at all times.
We are thankful to Satori Adventures, particularly Rishiji for taking the utmost care of us all through our Holiday Trekking and vacation. We were provided with stay at the best possible accommodations (Mountain Lodges of Nepal) at Phakding, Monjo and Namche Bazaar offering the best possible mountain hospitality.
Thank you, Satori Adventures & Rishiji.
The Satori team really show up for their customers in every situation. They’re always fast to respond and organize, and when me and my friend got sick on the mountains they did everything to organize our evacuation swiftly. Rishi and the team even looked after us during our hospital stay.
I did Mera Peak Climb through Satori Adventures. Rishi the owner of company is amazing and very easy to deal with. He customized Itinerary according to our requirements. There were last minute changes which Rishi was helpful with and worked to accommodate the same. Rishi was always available to respond to any questions. We had amazing guide with us through the climb and all tea house and everything along the way was good and we had a amazing climb. Would highly recommend Satori and Rishi. My wife and Mom were also in Katmandu doing sight seeing around Pokhara, Chitwan etc and Rishi worked out a very good travel itinerary for them as well and accommodated all our requests. So highly recommend Satori Adventures.
Great Organisation of the trip, and great support during the journey, considering I was going solo on lobuje and island peak. Satori is very good at figuring out, what their clients need, and providing spot-on services and individualised trips. I met amicable and kind people. The next time I come to Nepal, I will be with Satori again!
Thank you exciting adventures for Satori Nepal and my friend Rishi Bhandari! It was my third time in Nepal, but I learned a lot of new things… again! Your country and indefatigable and fantastic, colourfull
We had a unique and worry-free experience on the Manaslu Circuit trek that we completed two weeks ago. All thanks to Rishi and the Satori team. Without them, there would not have been possible. This is the 3rd time we have used Satori Adventure for trekking in the Himalayas, and the service quality was outstanding every time. Highly recommended.
We had a great experience with Rishi and the entire Satori team trekking to Everest Base Camp. All arrangements up front, arrival in Nepal, accommodation in Kathmandu and during the trip, and any Adhoc support required, were at the highest standards!
A two outstanding highlights:
- Rishi, who was our main point of contact, arranged on short notice a return flight from Lukla to Kathmandu during one of the busiest seasons, something which is not easy to do
- Deepan and Tenzing, our guide and Porter during the trek, were excellent, very proficient in English, knowledgeable and fun to spend time with as we completed our trip
It was a lifetime experience for us, and we look forward to returning to Nepal and working with Satori for future treks and hikes.
Visited Mt Everest base camp last week via helicopter & it was once in lifetime experience! Suggest staying at Everest view hotel to see the sunrise over Everest.
The pilots & the guides were excellent!
The rest of the stay in Nepal was also superb at excellent hotels with yummy meals.
Rishiji, the polite & ever-smiling owner of this agency, gives that extra personal touch to make the trip hassle-free & unforgettable.
We recently returned from Nepal after spending 10 days travelling with
Satori adventure PVT ltd with a lifetime experience of Heli tour of Everest base camp. Every aspect of the
The holiday was just perfect. The company representatives, drivers and
Guides were all of a very high standard. We would especially like to
Acknowledge Rishi Bhandari, owner of the organisation. He was very supportive and
It could not be faulted in any way.
We did Upper Dolpo Trek in Nepal this may, exiting in Phoksundo lake. Satori Adventures provided us with applicable service of airport transfers, permits issuing and guide service on the trek. They helped us with itinerary planning, flight tickets and lodging in Kathmandu in the lovely hotel.
For me selecting a guide/logistics provider for my Everest climb was a big decision. I spent lot of time shopping around and asking ton of questions to company such as Satori and even friends who had climbed Everest in past. Mr Rishi the owner has had an open communication from the very first email I sent him and had answered every single question. He is hands on and gives lot of importance on climbers safety and their needs. Takes good care while you are in Kathmandu!
Satori also has a very very strong Sherpa team, their experience, expertise and decision making is absolutely amazing. Kitchen staff and Head chef took great care while at base camp, made amazing food, I actually ended up gaining weight through out this expedition, which is rare, climbers normally loose around 10-15kgs. One of the climbers on my team required immediate helicopter evacuation from Camp two. With help of lead Sherpa and Rishi we were able to get her evacuated within hours and possibly saving her life.
Base camp facilities were great and super comfortable, with personal tents, clean toilet tents, on-demand hot showers, well stocked dinning tents with various snacks, fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, solar and gas generated power supply. I wish Satori had dome tent for lounging like most other teams but besides that there was no real complaints. Everyone from the Porters to Kitchen Staff to Sherpa team to the owner himself, they all went above and beyond to make this expedition memorable.I was able to safely and successfully climb Lobuche East, Everest and Lhotse with Satori in Spring 2022. I strongly recommend them for Treks and climbs in Nepal.
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
