Skydiving in Nepal is unquestionably exhilarating. Dealing with the breathtaking 360-degree views of the Himalayas while in free fall is no mere coincidence. Furthermore, if it’s Everest, how can anyone resist the views of those massive peaks?
Well, the Everest skydiving takes place at Gorakshep, Kala Patthar, the world’s highest drop zone. And it takes place right in front of the world’s tallest peak, Mt. Everest (8,848.86m).
Skydiving first became popular in Nepal in 2008. Since then, the two most popular places in the country (Everest and Pokhara) have offered the thrill of skydiving.
However, skydiving in Nepal is rather costly. Even the top skydiving destinations, such as New Zealand’s Fox Glacier or Namibia’s Namib Desert costs way more reasonable. The cost of it starts from US$ 30,000 in Nepal, basically in Everest Region.
Though skydiving in Pokhara is less expensive than in the Everest region, Everest skydiving is truly unique. It would undoubtedly be the most expensive, but also the most worthwhile, purchase of your life.
