Adventure specialist High and Wild is offering clients the ultimate adrenalin rush – a skydive over Everest.


The daring experience will take place at 29,500ft above the world’s highest mountain, will offer eagle-eye views of the Himalayas and is available to people who have never done a parachute jump before.


The Everest Skydive will consist of a group of 24 clients. Those with no parachute experience will be strapped to experts for a tandem jump. The trip of a lifetime is priced £12,675 for a licensed skydiver and £16,870 for tandem passengers. Partners and observers can join the trip for £3,750. Personal insurance and international flights are not included.


The referral fee for travel agents who introduce a client to the Everest Skydive is £250 for licensed skydivers and £375 for tandem passengers.


High and Wild founder and managing director Nigel Gifford said the operator mainly sold direct through its website but was also sold by Responsible Travel and Trailfinders. However, he stressed the company was keen to work with more retailers if they could demonstrate a good knowledge of its product.
