It isn’t easy to film at 20,000 feet, but the aerial cinema experts at Teton Gravity Research have outdone themselves in this video of the world’s highest mountains.

This first ultra HD footage of the Himalayas is shot from above 20,000 ft. with the GSS C520 system, the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system in the world.

It was shot from a helicopter with a crew flying from Kathmandu at 4,600 ft. up to 24,000 ft. on supplemental oxygen. The images of Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, and Lhotse are so clear and sharp it’s like nothing we’ve ever seen.
