Pokhara Skydive -09 Days
An Adventure of Serenity and Sensation – Pokhara Skydive
Pokhara is extraordinarily alluring. Let’s make this beauty thrilling as well! Following the success of the World’s Highest Skydiving adventure – Everest Skydive, we now offer a standard form of skydiving in Pokhara, an amazing blend of elegance and excitement. Situated about 124 miles (200 kilometers) west of Kathmandu, Pokhara is blessed with natural adornments in abundance. Flanked by panoramic Himalayan peaks of Annapurna, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhre; and embedded by emerald lakes, Pokhara is a tourist hub frequented by thousands of visitors every year. The city is also the starting point of the Annapurna Treks, the most popular trekking route in Nepal after Everest. Backed up by the expert Everest Skydive Crew, Pokhara Skydive will be held at Pame Danda dropzone, west of Phewa Lake where skydivers will leap from a height of 11000-13000 ft from AS 350 B3/B2 Helicopter.
With the majestic peaks at your backdrop and the valley of Pokhara sprawling below, you take the leap from the aircraft, free falling for a few seconds, before your canopy opens and land gently on the ground. Your entire jump will be captured on film by the camera flyer. The Pokhara Skydive is a eight- day package, that includes 3-2 Solo/Tandem Jumps, accommodation, sightseeing tours and air and surface transfers (Kathmandu – Pokhara), plus rafting on the challenging rapids of Trishuli River. Entries are open for solo as well as tandem jump. If you want the thrill of the event but don’t want to experience solo skydiving or you have friends or family members joining you, we offer a ‘Holiday Package’ that includes one Tandem Jump and one Tandem Paragliding within the same Boogie Package. An optional half-an-hour Microlight Flight is also open for those who do not like skydive. If you want to be a part of this liberating experience, join us in this adventure of Serenity and Sensation!!
