हेलिकप्टरबाट आकाशमा हाम्फाल्ने साहसिक खेल स्काई डाइबिंग पोखरामा
Pokhara, city of lakes and mountains, has not just been growing as a transit to Annapurna trek but
also emerging as a city of adrenaline activities. Paragliding, hot air balloon, canoeing, zip flyer, bungee, etc were the options of adventurists in the past, however, with the addition of ski diving the charm of adventure has escalated than before.
Skydiving in Pokhara is indeed an incomparable experience, as it is not just jumping off the helicopter to experience the free fall of 15 seconds but also imbibing the nature with the background view of magnificent mount Fishtail aka Machhapuchhre and fresh water lake, Phewa. According to a member of tourism board, “This new adventure will help to make the tourism year 2020 successful as well as it will increase the length of stay of tourists in Pokhara”. He further added, “Skydiving will be a milestone to publicize Pokhara as the land of adventure activities”.
Sky diving had been tested in Pokhara since 2008, however, due to lack of experts and its high- cost, was not successful as expected. Company named, Kathmandu Explore Himalaya has now commercially started this adventure with cost of NPR 10,000 for Nepali adventurers and $100 for foreigners.
