Valery Rozov Makes World's Highest Base Jump from Mount Everest

Russian base jumper Valery Rozov set a new record for the World's highest base jump. He climbed Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth to make it happen.

48-year-old Russian extreme sport star Valery Rozov jumped off the north face of Mount Everest for the world's highest base jump. The jump off point was at 7,220 meters (23,688ft) above sea level.

Like with most extreme sport stunts, Red Bull sponsored it. Watch the short video below with the highlights of the World's Highest Base Jump from Mount Everest. It looks so easy, but Valery Rozov had to turn free fall into flying in very thin air. After that he flew for nearly a full minute at speeds of about 200 km/h (125 mph) along the north face before he landed safely on the Rongbuk glacier - at an altitude of 5,950 meters.
