AS ANYONE WHO HAS BEEN there knows, the Himalayas are stunning. But it can be hard to get solid aerial footage in the Himalayas because of difficulties with flying small aircraft in the rarified mountain air. This video, taken from a helicopter that flew from Kathmandu in Nepal at 4,600 feet up to 24,000 feet in the Himalayas, captures the incredible views of the mountains in ultra HD footage for the first time.

Using an advanced, gyro-stabilized system, the filmmakers at Teton Gravity Research caught this insanely crisp, beautiful footage of the mountains. Watch it in fullscreen HD mode if you can.
