Easily the most impressive video I’ve seen, this is the first ultra HD footage of the Himalayas shot at 20,000 feet. They test out the newest, most advanced camera stabilizing gear in the world, hovering in a helicopter over the worlds highest mountains.
The crew from Teton Gravity Research needed a steady supply of oxygen as they soared above the planets highest peak, which straddles the boarder of Nepal and China.
Filmed from a helicopter with a crew flying from Kathmandu at 4,600 feet up to 24,000 feet.
“These are some of the most stable, crisp, clear aerial shots of these mountains ever released,” states the website.
The first scenes are of the streets of Kathmandu, and drift backwards, higher and higher across the gorgeous landscape of rivers, waterfalls, and hiking trails that the region boasts. Then we start soaring, but the images stay crystal clear, no mater how high, minute details are sharp.
In the film we see Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, and Lhotse. Now if only my computer could blast out some fresh mountain air.
