The people at Teton Gravity Research¬†might be missing an “anti-” from their name, if the new footage they released is any indication. They claim to be the first organization to acquire ultra HD footage of the Himalayan mountain peaks taken from more than 20,000 feet up in the air. But even if they weren’t the first, the footage they got is so good that it would still be an impressive accomplishment.

Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and other mountains that make up the Himalayas were the subject of this expedition by Teton Gravity Research, and the footage was taken by a helicopter that took the cameras up around 24,000 feet. And you’ll see when you watch the video that this is different from the footage of Everest and other mountains that you’re used to seeing, even if you don’t have a 4k ultra HD display to watch it on.

You can see what I mean by checking out the video below. And for more from Teton Gravity Research, check out their official site here.
