Skydiving enthusiast? Put Nepal into your bucket list. Nepal now offers skydiving options with 360 degree view of the Himalayas.
Emerging as extreme aerial adventure, Everest skydiving is one of the most unique experiences in the world. Skydiving is done from a plane or a chopper onto the world’s highest drop zone at Gorak Shep, Kala Patthar. The skydiving takes place in front of Mt. Everest (8,848 m), and the free fall takes place past some of the world’s highest mountain peaks.
For those who want to keep it less extreme, try it at Pokhara, next to the mighty Annapurnas and the Fewa Lake below. Experienced pilots with skydiving ratings man the aircraft, so safety is guaranteed. Skydiving can be either a solo jump or in tandem.
The Pokhara Skydive is a eight- day package, that includes 3-2 Solo/Tandem Jumps, accommodation, sightseeing tours and air and surface transfers (Kathmandu – Pokhara), plus rafting on the challenging rapids of Trishuli River. Entries are open for solo as well as tandem jump. If you want the thrill of the event but don’t want to experience solo skydiving or you have friends or family members joining you, we offer a ‘Holiday Package’ that includes one Tandem Jump and one Tandem Paragliding within the same Boogie Package.
