Everest Skydive (Nepal)
You could spend months preparing for, and eventually climbing, the world’s highest mountain … or you could skydive past it. The self-proclaimed “world’s most elite skydiving adventure” allows adventurers to jump from a plane at 29,500 feet, higher than the Everest summit, to float back to base camp. So why climb when you can fly?
Himalaya Rally (India)
What makes Raid-de-Himalaya different from other motorcar rallies? You have to drive above an altitude of 4,572 meters for two days of the five-day adventure. This turns the rally from one of pure driving skill, to one of intense endurance and physical and mental toughness, as you battle oxygen depletion and icy temperatures.
