Our Everest Skydive trip runs twice a year, in March and in October, from our Shyangboche Dropzone. These months are known to have the clearest skies and lowest wind speeds. Our jump vehicles are Airbus As350 B3 helicopters and the most experienced mountain pilots of Nepal. The jump altitudes vary from 6,000t to 10,000ft above ground level. Accompanying you on the jump will be a jumpmaster and a tandem instructor if you are a novice. We can also provide a jump cameraman at an additional charge. After all, the trip may only be a few days, but the memories of your Himalayan skydive will last a lifetime.
The trip starts in Kathmandu, from where you will take a flight to the infamous Lukla airport. Perched on a slope plataue above a cliff face on one end of the run way and mountain on the other end, flying into Lukla airport is itself an experience of a lifetime. From Lukla, our jumpers will take a two day hike through the beautiful river valley, up to Namche Bazaar which is the capital of the Sherpa homeland.
The Skydive Nepal dropzone, Shyangboche airstrip, is located an hour hike up from Namche Bazaar. The airstrip was built in the 80s by a Japanese hotelier to allow guests to fly in by single propeller aircraft. Today the single prop planes are gone but the airstrip remains and it’s proved to be the most spectacular drop zone in the world. Our trip incorporates an additional night in Namche for acclimatization, providing us with ample time for drop zone familiarization and pre-jump orientation.
Skydiving in the Himalaya is a unique challenge but the risk is mitigated with our team of expert jump masters, tandem instructors, DZ safety officers, pilots, medic and ground crew. Before each Skydive in Nepal, a thorough briefing and familiarization of the DZ is provided. Our jumpmaster and tandem instructors will go over all the procedures and safety precautions before you strap into your parachutes.
You will each have 3 jumps here as standard, and more jumps on request. Furthermore, once the Everest Skydive jumps are completed, you have the option to extend the trip and partake in the world famous trek to Everest Base Camp.
