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.
