I was to climb Island peak in Nepal for 20 days and found that The trekking climb was a wonderful adventure. Each day of trekking was inspiring, being surrounded by the spectacular views, and magnificent mountain peaks.
Satori Managements team, Specially Rishi Bhandari, Guides, Sherpa’, porters where very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They helped make my trip a wonderful experience in the Himalayas. Rishi ensured that my trip requests where fulfilled and the trip was tailored exactly to my needs. I would highly recommend Satori team to use for any expedition in Himalayas!!
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.
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.
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).
Namaste , I was a part of Everest expedition south face team 2016, I enjoyed lot with staff and with members of team , staff and Sherpa team were excellent and well supportive , Rishi Bhandari sir arranged all things very well through out the expidition , I m really happy with satori adventure , thanks to every one from my expidition team as well as to supporting staff ,
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!

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.
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.
I have climbed successfully Cho-Oyu and Shishapangma Expedition with Satori Service. The service was Excellent, professioanl organization, very helpful staff and very quick in answers by Rishi Bhandari. We have got competitive price. In the base camp service is excellent and the staff work hard. Satori Sirdar and expedition leader Mr Mingma Temba Sherpa Willingness to best solve each problem.

Surely we'll organize again other expeditions together.

Satori Adventures is not only a service provided, one of the best responsible adventures company we found in The Himalayas. We had already explored Manaslu, Annapurna, Everest, Makalu, Kanchejunga, Upper Mustang, and Upper Dolpo through these excellent operators.

It was a long time ago when I and my friends had a lively conversation about Himalaya Mountains and Nepal resulting in decision to go and explore the roof of the world ourselves. I had started to search a genuen company which could provide all service there. As usually I search in Google for activities in Nepal and found Satori Adventures.
We had three weeks of amazing adventures in Annapurna region! Trekking around Annapurna, getting over Thorung La (5416m) pass, cycling downhill to Beni, was, what a experience for us. Awesome. This trip needs to be repeated! So we are very grateful to Rishi and Satori team for this unforgettable trip we had meet wonderful people face to face. How touching to see the local kids putting their small dirty palms together and greeting travelers: Namaste! I found that Nepal is Never Ending Peace and Love for me. It`s true.From the bottom of my heart I recommend everyone to use Satori Adventures team for the most unforgettable experience in Himalayas.
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.
I want to highly recommend Satori Adventures for the best Nepal Tour.
