The Himalayas from 20,000 ft.

The aerial cinema experts at Teton Gravity Research release the first ultra HD footage of the Himalayas shot from above 20,000 ft. with the GSS C520 system, the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system in the world. Filmed from a helicopter with a crew flying from Kathmandu at 4,600 ft. up to 24,000 ft. on supplemental oxygen, these are some of the most stable, crisp, clear aerial shots of these mountains ever released, which include Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, and Lhotse.

Amazing!

Great footage!
BTW the sixth last clip is labelled MT Everest - that is Makalu with Baruntse and West Col in foreground. The next clip is Everest.

Is there a longer version of this for purchase?

Incredible, and thanks to the team for capturing this wonderful images of Mt. Everest.

Over the last few years he has been pushing the discipline of psicobloc, better known as deep water soloing, to new levels. He still falls a lot, just now into refreshing bodies of water. His latest project, a 5.14 climb on the Pont D’Arc in France, represents one of his greatest achievements in the sport to date.

Next Level Parkour on the Rooftops of Tokyo

Jason Paul, a German-born “freerunner”, is really good at jumping off and around stuff. His athletic prowess includes a Spiderman like precision, which is on display in this video of him leaping from rooftop to rooftop in Tokyo, Japan. He refers to this jaunt across the skyline as his morning walk, even though this casual term includes launching himself over railings, between buildings, and down cement staircases. Even if you live in a big city, we wouldn’t recommend trying this unless you’re
