Pokhara Skydive

Pokhara Skydive – Adding thrill to the beauty of Pokhara!
Fly above the clouds! View the captivating lakes below! Embrace the Annapurnas! And jump at one of the most beautiful drop zones in the world- No dream is too big for Pokhara Skydive!

Following the success of the World’s Highest Skydiving adventure – Everest Skydive, we now offer an exclusive skydiving adventure in Pokhara as well.  Pokhara, situated about 124 miles (200 kilometers) west of Kathmandu, is truly a city of sensation and serenity. Flanked by panoramic Himalayan peaks of Annapurna, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhre, and adorned by emerald lakes; Pokhara, apart from being an unmistakable beauty of the Himalaya, is also an adventure hub of Nepal. This elegant and adventurous city is now touching new heights with yet another edition of Himalayan Skydive – Pokhara Skydive, a sublime adventure you don’t want to miss while in Nepal.

Backed up by the expert Everest Skydive Crew, Pokhara Skydive started its commercial operation in 2013. Held every autumn at Pame Lauruk dropzone, 11km north of Phewa Lake amidst huge fun and excitement, this adventure is getting increasingly popular every year. In 2017 (9th– 11th November) alone, we had a total of 65 jumpers from around the world. It is rightly said that skydiving is not just about the adrenaline rush, it’s also about the View that people can only dream of. Pokhara Skydive rightly justifies it! Leaping from a height of 11000-13000 ft from AS 350 B3/B2 Helicopter, with the majestic Himalaya around you and the serene valley of Pokhara sprawling below is indeed a feast to your soul. However, the fun doesn’t end here. Your entire jump will be captured on film by our camera flyer so that you can relive your moments again and again. We have the option of both Package and Individual Jumps. So, why to wait – Pokhara Skydive is all set to make your dream a reality!
