Enlisted as one of most electrifying adventures in the world, Everest Skydive has come a long way since its first test operation held in May 2008. The same year in Autumn, it started its first commercial operation. And the rest is the history!
Since its first operation, Everest Skydive has continued its sensational appeal till date with records of about 400 jumps including many world records. Every October/November Everest Skydive takes place with the same legendary thrill of its maiden flight, giving not only wings to the extreme adventure buffs to soar over mighty Everest but also the opportunity to get their names into the international record books and make history. Year 2019 brought new height in the chapter of Everest Skydive. On 19th May 2019, Paul-Henry de Baere (ESD Media Director) did a record breaking (world’s highest) parachute landing at 20,160ft MSL (6145m) at the West Col of Baruntse. In ESD’s autumn edition the same year, two skydivers with prosthetic legs (Osama A Na Akamshad and Al Hodgson) did Everest Skydive jumps and became the first two skydivers with prosthetic legs to do Everest Skydive.
Such is the legacy of Everest Skydive and it continues to shine every year with more number of adventurers and record holders aspiring to be the part of this dream event. However, Everest Skydive adventure is not just for skydivers only. It also offers a great spectacle to the observers, local cluster and media all round the world. The team’s enormous level of dedication and the people, who wanted to see this event continue and grow, made it such a huge success. The love and passion of everyone involved has made Everest Skydive one of the most amazing adventures in the Himalaya today.
