Are there any special requirements for Everest skydivers?
Jumpers should be at least 18 years old and in good physical health, but a physical disability may not prevent you from jumping. If you have any questions regarding your ability to skydive Everest, call or email Incredible Adventures. Tandem skydiving makes it possible for people to skydive who may be incapable of making a solo jump. If you are unable to complete the trekking portion of the program, we can suggest alternate ways to acclimatize to high-altitude.
