The Adventure That Beats All Adventures: Extreme Skydiving At The Top Of The World
Everest Skydive does not only take you to the dizzying heights of 29,500ft, it also takes you to the heart of the Sherpa country and the Everest region. After landing at the airstrip in Lukla, you begin your trek to Syangboche.
Following the Dudh Kosi River, you trek past picturesque Sherpa villages, gompas (monasteries) within the Sagarmatha National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Syangboche, a Sherpa hamlet situated just above Namche Bazaar, is the site for the Everest Skydive event. Upon reaching the hamlet, you will get ready to take the 'World's Highest Jump' and land at 12,350 ft.
The highly qualified pilots will take you to a height of 29,500 ft in a Pilatus PC-6 Aircraft, which is equipped with a state-of-the-art oxygen system. Hurtling past some of the world's tallest peaks in a few seconds of freefall (solo or tandem), the adrenaline rush will be something you have never experienced before – a dream will certainly come true!
All through your adventure, you will be guided by our Everest Skydive Crew, which includes some of the world's leading skydivers and mountaineering experts.
