Equipment & Safety

Skydive EverestAll the skydiving equipment will be provided for you. Jumping at such altitudes requires special parachute equipment which has been manufactured from very robust materials. You will not jump your own rig. Your Everest Skydive rig will be packed for you under the supervision of an advanced packer.

The opening altitudes for your main parachute will be between 16,000ft and 18,000ft AMSL. The main landing area (DZ) is at 12,350ft AMSL. These altitudes demand large main parachutes of 300 - 400 sq ft and a reserve of similar size. Both the parachutes we are using have been proven successful.

A world renowned AAD has been incorporated into the system on the reserve. You will be issued with a standard MA2 - 30 altimeter that is accurate up to 30,000ft, so your AGL will be correct at 12,350ft and you will have a true reading on your altimeter. You will also be provided with a skydiving oxygen system. The system has been well proven at high altitude, is unobtrusive, and non restrictive to body movement or vision. You will have thermal head cover, head protection and protective goggles provided. You will be fully familiarised with all the equipment.

Tandem passengers will be fully prepared by their tandem master prior to making their tandem descent. You will also have a small personal survival kit, compass, firefly strobe, and 2 way mini radio in case of landing off the DZ. The DZ 'vehicles' are an Equirrel B3 helicopter, or a sherpa guide with a yak and yak man, if the distance is not too far from the DZ.

Clothing

Skydiving Suits designed by Rajen DulalThe suits worn by the skydivers during the Everest Skydive 2008 were locally made by a young Thamel-based Nepali entrepreneur, Rajen Dulal. The red, blue and black skydiving suits that were all tailored in a small workshop in Thamel made it to the top grade. The Everest Skydive 2012 down suits will be designed and tailored once again by Rajen Dulal and his team.
