Living dangerously is the new swag and what better way to do it than sky diving. It may be only a few seconds of your life but it gives you a thrill that lasts a lifetime. What even makes it more memorable is the location where you do it (aside from maybe your parachute taking longer than necessary to open!). The make or break of a skydiving experience is the view and here are a few places that can earn you that bad ass trophy in skydiving:
Taupo, New Zealand
This is no doubt the king of the skydiving jungle. With over 30,000 people flocking here every summer for the few seconds of pure terror, this is a must go place for every aspiring skydiver who is staying in Rotorua for a vacation. Apart from being competitively priced, there are a lot of professional companies with jumping offers leaving you spoilt for choice. The skydive Taupo for instance offers an unforgettable experience when you book a jump at their jump zone. What with a limousine escort from the airport and so much more.
Mt Everest, Nepal
The thrill of skydiving is in the heights and what better place to do it than from the top of a mountain. With only four trips in a year and having to pay at least $1000 dollars six months in advance and about $ 14,000 three months to the take off, the trip might be costly but the experience can be compared to none. Can you imagine being 29000 ft high up in the sky? You will need to wear breathing apparatus before taking that fly of fame to land on the highest drop zone in the world.
Every skydivers’ dream because the cost is quite low compared to others and the experience will still thrill you nonetheless. A student will easily part with as little as $250 meaning so every tom, dick and harry has a pretty good chance of bagging a bad ass pass here. With a chance to glaze at a whole island while in the air, you will be forgiven for thinking you are watching a 3D episode of lost.
This is a trip that will put fun in the desert and penny saver in the same sentence. For as little as $ 200-$300 for a 10,000 ft jump few places in the world can beat that deal. The most unique thing about the view from the sky is the beautiful scenery of not only caramel colored sand dunes but also a cool view of the cities and the wildlife.
Now make sure you play it safe, the last thing you want are some injury claims so sort out some insurance, Happy jumping!
