Imagine this: You’re strapped in, heart pounding a rhythmic counterpoint to the whirring helicopter blades. Below, the snow-capped majesty of Everest pierces the sky, an icy titan dwarfing everything else. The door swings open, revealing a tapestry of valleys and glaciers sprawling beneath you. With a deep breath, you take the plunge, hurtling towards the earth at 120mph, the wind roaring a song of pure adrenaline. This is skydiving in Nepal – an adrenaline-pumping adventure unlike any other, and Trekking Venue Nepal (TVN) is your gateway to this dream.

Whether you’re a seasoned thrill-seeker or a curious first-timer, TVN caters to all, offering exhilarating skydiving packages in two of Nepal’s most stunning locations: Everest and Pokhara. Let’s delve into the heart of each experience.

Everest Skydive
Everest Skydive is an extreme sport that involves jumping out of an aircraft over Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain. It is considered one of the most dangerous skydiving experiences due to the high altitude, extreme weather conditions, and the risk of altitude sickness.

This adventure is a physically and mentally demanding activity that requires a high level of fitness and experience. Skydivers must be well-trained and certified before attempting this extreme sport. Due to the risks involved, Everest Skydive is not for the faint of heart and is only recommended for experienced skydivers.

One Day Everest Base Camp Heli Tour

Highlights:

  • Jump from 23,000ft, breathing thin air as you freefall towards the earth, with Everest and its neighboring giants dwarfing you in their splendor.
  • Experience the world’s highest dropzone at Syangboche Airstrip, perched amidst breathtaking scenery.
  • Choose from 2 or 3 jumps, allowing you to savor the exhilarating freefall and capture stunning aerial panoramas.
  • Enjoy a comfortable stay in Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Everest Base Camp, with its rich Sherpa culture and vibrant atmosphere.

The trip starts in Kathmandu, from where you will take a flight to the infamous Lukla airport. Perched on a sloping plateau above a cliff face on one end of the runway 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 skydiving dropzone, Syangboche airstrip, is situated an hour’s 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 Himalayas is a unique challenge but the risk is mitigated with our team of expert jumpmasters, 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. Skydiving – this expedition in Nepal is for you if: You’re looking for an experience of a lifetime. You want to skydive in the shadow of Mt. Everest. You want to have an extreme adventure during the day but a cozy hotel room at night. You want to join a small elite club of jumpers who landed above 10,000ft in a parachute. Try your first oxygen jump.
