The closest I’ve ever gotten to the oxygen-scarce slopes of Mt. Everest was in the pages of Jon Krakauer’s award winning novel Into Thin Air. Today, that’s no longer the case.


The aerial cinema experts at Teton Gravity Research take us from 4,200 feet to 24,000 feet with seamless execution using the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system in the world. The helicopter crew, flying on their own supplemental oxygen, was able to capture some of the most crisp, stable and breathtaking shots of the Himalayas ever released.


Here’s our takeaway: Famous author and wilderness man John Muir said it best, ” The Mountains are calling, and I must go.” Take this as a calling to get out and explore the beauty that surrounds.
