The Adventure that Beats All Adventures
Everest Skydive is considered as one of most Elite Adventure Holidays in the world and therefore, remains a dream event for many Adventure Seekers who want to fill their limitless passion-pit with extraordinary zeal and thrill. Dropping off from a AS350 B3 helicopter from the height of 23000ft and landing at Syangboche Airport (12340ft) and at Amadablam Basecamp (15000ft) is undeniably the highest commercial aerial event in the world.
CNN News Channel has ranked it as No. 8 out of 50 best Adventure Events organized throughout the world under the heading, “Try before you die” events. The adrenaline rush you get from the freefall, the eye-feasting view of the picturesque Sherpa settlement with the back drop of world’s highest peak Mt. Everest, along with other equally petrifying sister peaks, and the whole alpine experience can be a lifetime achievement.
Following the success of Everest Skydive (2008), it’s being continued annually in October/November. A total of Three Hundred Forty Nine jumps from worldwide have tried Everest Skydive with Solo or Tandem attempts since then. There have been 283 Solo Jumps and 66 Tandems till date.
Everest Skydive 2014 also continued to extend its glorious history. This seventh edition of Everest Skydive, was held on 7th and 8th of November 2014. Tom Noonan, the chief tandem instructor of Everest Skydive since 2008 played his usual role and Joe Johnson, the first timer in ESD was the tandem master of the event. Mr. Paul Henry de Baère led the photography and cinematography whereas; Mr. Ted Atkins was an Oxygen Supervisor of the event. Six skydivers including the crew members landed at Syangboche drop-zone, after the jump of the lifetime during Everest Skydive 2014. Wingsuit jump made by Mr. Ossie Khan, was especially the climax of the whole event.
