We offer a trip that you will remember for its unique magnificence, dazzling perspectives, and extreme trial of your abilities. 

Ascending the mountain from the Southside has a place with one of those Everest endeavors which permit you to move past the limits of your creative mind. Being practically on the highest point of the Earth will enable you to develop a more excellent picture. Overlooking the natural wonders of Nepal, Everest is known to be a legendary mountain steeped in history. It is not about easy-to-climb one that everyone can conquer.

When you embark on our Everest guided expeditions, it is up to you to open up horizons you have never seen before.

Climbing Mount Everest from South Face

The unique point of this route lies in crossing the Khumbu Icefall and the Lhotse Face. While Everest is known for harsh weather conditions and unpredictability, this glacier features crevasses and seracs scattered all over the way. With this in mind, Satori Adventures provides all climbers with professional guiding services and equipment required for successful ascending. We have been mapping out new routes and improving safety standards for many years to help you achieve summit aspirations. That is why our Everest expedition cost includes scores of ladders, carrying ropes, and other equipment to get through crevasses and other obstacles successfully. Besides, new techniques allow us to cross the Khumbu Icefall much faster than before. We will do everything it takes to overcome difficulties while Climbing Mount Everest from South Face.

On the Road to Summit

Everest trekking means crossing snow-capped peaks while being in full gear at heights above 8,000 meters. Plus, every climber subject to the effects of high altitude, including oxygen deprivation. Therefore, Satori Adventures allows for several acclimatization periods at camps so that you can get accustomed to ever-changing environmental conditions and keep your performance at the highest level.

 Before setting out on a guided Everest Expedition, it recommends testing your mountaineering skills, endurance, and adaptiveness. Although we will provide you with professional assistance and vital equipment, you should practice hard to pay tribute to nature while standing at the summit of the highest mountain in the world.

 Satori Adventures enables you to live through the experience you have been looking for long. Choose this climbing route and enjoy the allure of Everest to the fullest. Now the time has come to challenge yourself!

South Col Route Camps:

Base camp: 17,060'/ 5200m

Everest base camp lies notice sheet at 5,200 meters from sea level, where you will spend up to 45 days. The Conditions in Everest Base Camp will stay steady during the climbing period and include stirring many tents and stages as the ice moves and melts. The territory is unforgiving yet delightful, encompassed by Pumori, Nuptse, Lola, Nutse, and the Khumbu Icefall with warm mornings and unexpected evening snow gusts. With such numerous endeavor groups at BC, it closely resembles a little town in the Himalayas.

C1: 19,357'/ 5900m

Arriving at C1 is the most specialized piece of a southside move since it crosses the Khumbu Icefall. The Icefall is 2,000′ feet of moving ice with profound chasms, transcending ice sera's and torrential slides off Everest's west shoulder. During the climbing period, we endeavor to go through just two evenings at Camp I for acclimation. If you have appropriate acclimatization, the game plans call you to go all over direct from camp II to security.

C2: 20,998'/ 6400m

Camp 2 lies in a sidelong moraine at the lower part of the west edge. It is a too protected and shielded area with huge perspectives on Lhotse. All organizations set-up their primary climbing camp for the climbing period's duration here with tents for individual climbers and kitchen and dining tents. Camp II is an essential acclimatization camp and the central command for focus III. The camp where you are spending the most time after base camp.

C3: 23,294'/ 7100m

Climbing the Lhotse Face to C3 is often tricky since almost all climbers feel the effects of high altitude and are not yet using supplemental oxygen. The Lhotse Face is steep, and the ice is hard, but the route fixed with rope, and the angles can range from 30 to 45 degrees. It is a long climb to C3 but required for acclimatization before a summit bid. You will spend two nights at camp three for acclimatization and the summit push.

South Col: 26,300'/ 8000m

Welcome to the moon—the Everest to the north and Lhotse on the south covered with loose rock. Located at the South Col is the last camp; most climbers are easily accessible without supplementary oxygen. There are two rock sections to navigate before camp 4: the Yellow Band, an inter-layer of marble, phyllite, semi schist rock, and the Geneva Spur, an anvil-shaped rib of black stone. Both of these areas are set-up with fixed ropes.

Summit: 29,032′/ 8848.86m – 1 hour or less

The last section from the South Col to the summit takes 09-13 hours to navigate. There is the Balcony, the Hillary Step, and the south summit before reaching the central panel. The route to the true summit is a moderate snow slope, and while tired, adrenaline keeps most climbers moving at this point.

Satori Adventures has not able to include the cost of each package in the company website. Many of our clients have the same query: why Satori Adventures has not included the price in the package. To provide you service in reasonable cost and attempt to address your each requirement we desired to provide you with some information which directly affects the cost and also helps us breakdown the cost. That’s why, we have decided to clarify our customers that due to following reasons we have not included the cost in our website and package:

  • The cost of the trip always depends on the size of the group, category of the hotel accommodation and the facilities that you aspire in the mountain.
  • We operate the peak climbing in full arrangement package and basic arrangement service (full board or base camp service) which directly affects the expedition cost.
  • The itinerary may be changed after reaching an understanding between the agency and the client. Other activities could be added or reduced as per the client's request before processing the trip. Price for reduced activities could be deducted and additional activities could be added in mutual understanding.
  • The number of climbing Sherpa guides, high altitude porters, kitchen crew, mode of transport you prefer and many other factors can affect the cost of the trip.
  • Number of persons in group including; number of climbers, non-climber, base camp supporters, medical doctors, Alpine climbing guide also affect the cost.

  • Climbing season: normally most of the climbers climb Himalayas in the spring and the autumn season. The climbing permit royalty cost for mountain will be 50% less in the autumn than spring season.
  • Type of high camp food that clients require. Any specialized food that has to be ordered from foreign country will be costlier compared to the one available here.
  • Either any of the climbers intend to attempt any world records? If so, do they require special services or equipment?

Why climb with Satori Adventures in Everest?

How to Choosing a experience Provider

It is important for each climber to choose the right expedition guide service that not only suites their needs, but provides the best safely and secure mountaineering experience possible. There are more than 1,700 trekking companies in Nepal who offer 8,000 meter expeditions including Everest, but only about 30 companies who operate 8,000 meter peaks on a regular basis. We are proud to be one of these 30 companies and consistently offer, run and succeed at these types of expeditions year after year.
It is very important that the climbers who choose Satori Adventures for this trip of a lifetime experience have expectations that are compatible with the program we offer and the style of expedition Satori Adventures runs.

In the interests of giving you the most optimal chance to summit, we limit our team size to ensure the group summits on the best weather day; sometimes there are less window days for summit in Everest. In big size of group offering cheap climbs often miss out as they split their groups over several potential summit days. We feel like our climbing members are feeling that they are climbing as a family and friends team even on international people. We accept maximum 08 people in a group and if we have more than that we always split in two groups. So that our base camp staff cooks, climbing Sherpa guide will fully taking care about you and provide service as per your desire.

There is always a 1:1 ratio of the climbing Sherpa/guide and client. We always use professional and experienced climbing Sherpa or guides who have all reached the summit of Everest.

History

The Great Trigonometric Survey of India, part of the British Survey of India which began in 1803, made distance measurements of many high Himalayan peaks in the 1850s including those in the Mount Everest region. The Survey established the first published height of Everest, then known as Peak XV, at 29,002 ft (8,840 m). In 1865, Everest was given its official English name.

The northern approach to the mountain was explored by George Mallory on the first expedition in 1921. With Mallory leading (and thus becoming the first European to set foot on Everest's flanks) they climbed the North Col (7,007m).
The British returned for a 1922 expedition. George Finch climbed using oxygen for the first time. He ascended at a remarkable speed of 290m/hour, and reached an altitude of 8,320m, the first time a human climbed higher than 8,000m.
On 8 June 1924 George Mallory and Andrew Irvine made an attempt on the summit via the North Col/North Ridge/Northeast Ridge route from which they never returned.The Swiss expedition of 1952, led by Edouard Wyss-Dunant, was granted permission to attempt a climb from Nepal. The expedition established a route through the Khumbu ice fall and ascended to the South Col at an elevation of 7,986m.

In 1953, a ninth British expedition, led by John Hunt, returned to Nepal. The first pair (Tom Bourdillon and Charles Evans) came within 100 m (300 feet) of the summit on 26 May 1953, but turned back after becoming exhausted.
Two days later, the expedition made its second and final assault on the summit with the New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, a Nepali sherpa climber. They reached the summit at 11:30 a.m. local time on 29 May 1953 via the South Col Route.

On 8 May 1978, Reinhold Messner (Italy) and Peter Habeler (Austria) made the first ascent without supplemental oxygen, using the southeast ridge route. On 20 August 1980, Messner reached the summit of the mountain solo for the first time, without supplementary oxygen or support, on the more difficult Northwest route via the North Col to the North Face and the Great Couloir. He climbed for three days entirely alone from his base camp at 6,500 metres

In 1980, a team from Poland led by Andrzej Zawada, Leszek Cichy, and Krzysztof Wielicki became the first to reach the summit during the winter season.

On 14 May 2005, pilot Didier Delsalle of France landed a Eurocopter AS 350 B3 helicopter on the summit of Mount Everest (without any witness) and took off after about four minutes. (His rotors were continually engaged, constituting a "hover landing", and avoiding the risks of relying on the snow to support the aircraft.) He thereby set rotorcraft world records, for highest of both landing (de facto) and take-off (formally). Delsalle had also performed, two days earlier, a take-off from the South Col; some press reports suggested that the report of the summit landing was a misunderstanding of a South Col landing.

every single aspect of the expedition is very well taken care of57

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!

Everest from the south 2019

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

2019 Everest expedition

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.

Everest South Face Expedition -2019

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!!
