Nepalese Skydivers Jump Solo for the First Time in Pokhara

Posted Nov 2nd, 2010 under Company News, Skydive,

Everest Skydive in partnership with private domestic airline company Tara Air, have launched skydiving in Pokhara. Test flights were conducted successfully yesterday and today at Pokhara’s Chhine Danda. Skydivers flying on Tara Air’s Pilatus Porter aircraft leaped from 14000 feet and landed at the site of the Pokhara International Airport ( under construction). Yesterday’s action saw Everest Skydive’s main organizer and co-ordinator, Mr. Suman Pandey and Wendy Smith taking the leap. Today three Nepalese skydivers, Phul Bahadur Tamang, Bibek Pandey & Dik Bahadur Khirsina jumped solo. These three have created history. They are the first Nepalese solo skydivers.

Happy Explorers

Dolpo requires some extra logsistics and Pemba made all necessary arrangements. We also benefited. Both treks were wonderful! from having a local guide- Baba –in Mustang- as this is more of a cultural trek-his personal knowledge was useful.
