Skydiving in Nepal
Sky diving is one of the newest adventure sports in Nepal that has gained enormous popularity in a very short period of time. Every year hundreds of skydivers come to Nepal to try this ultimate freefall sport.
The thrill and excitement of Skydiving easily matches with the extreme geography of Nepal. Skydiving in Nepal involves jumping from the heights of the world’s highest Himalayan peaks such as Everest, Kanchenjunga, Manaslu, Makalu, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri and attaining a freefall.
Not only do you get to enjoy the thrill of flying like a bird, you will also be able to see a stunning panorama of the Himalayan peaks right below your feet. This is an experience that you can’t get anywhere but Nepal.
There are different types of sky diving such as Solo Skydiving and Tandem Skydiving depending on whether you are a beginner or experienced Skydiver. You will be guided by certified Nepali and international instructors. At present, Skydiving is organized in Nepal only in the month of November.
Skydiving in Nepal is safe and certified by the government of Nepal. In Nepal helicopters are used for skydiving and all the equipments including jumpsuits and parachute are provided by the skydiving company. All you need to do Skydiving is a pair of comfortable shoes and a big heart for adventure.
The world has one more reason to go to Everest- Everest Skydiving! Termed as an ‘elite adventure at the top of the world’, Everest Skydiving should be the number one priority in your adventure list.
Imagine jumping out of a helicopter from a whopping 29500feet surrounded by world’s highest peaks including Everest, Lhotse, Cholatse, Nuptse, Thamserku and Ama Dablam.

Fishtail (6993m) provide a heavenly backdrop for Skydivers. Pokhara Skydiving uses a AS 350 B2 or B3 Helicopter and the freefall is conducted from a height of 10000-12000ft.
