One more reason to come to Nepal if its not already in your bucket list is Skydiving, a relatively new sport in Nepal. Skydiving is done from a plane or a chopper onto the world’s highest drop zone at Gorak Shep, Kala Patthar. An excitingly extreme aerial adventure, Everest skydiving is an amazingly unique experience in the world and takes place over spectacular Khumbu region, next to none other than mighty Mt. Everest. As divers free fall they can witness dozens of mountains alongside Everest, as well as the beautiful Sherpa villages dotting the landscape below. The skydiving season is October and November of every year. Skydivers can opt to land in Syangboche Airport(12340ft) or at the base camp of one of the most iconic mountains in the Khumbu, Ama Dablam (15000ft).
‘Adventure without thrill is horror movies without scary’For those who want to keep it less extreme, go to 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 difference betwwen skydiving in Nepal compared to skydiving abroad is the spectacular 360 degree view of the Himalayas.
