Seeing as about 150 people have died trying to scale Mount Everest, and there’s not even a refreshment stand at the top of the thing, odds are we’ll never journey to the Himalayas. But that doesn’t mean we don’t wanna see it, so kudos to the cinematographers at Teton Gravity Research who recently captured the amazing sights in Nepal and Tibet.

They’ve recorded the first ultra HD footage of the Himalayas, shot from 20,000 feet high, with the GSS C520 system, said to be the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system in the world. Traveling by helicopter, the crew (using supplemental oxygen) managed to capture what might be the most spectacular footage of the famous mountain range, including Everest, Ama Dablam, and Lhotse.
