Here’s another interesting video that I came across today. This one was shot back in 2006, and follows a team of climbers who began their journey at the Dead Sea in Jordan, where the elevation is 422 meters (1385 feet) below sea level. From there, they proceeded to ride their bikes to Everest Base Camp, on the Tibetan side of the mountain, enduring all kinds of weather conditions along the way.
Of course, the journey doesn’t end there, as the group then proceeded to climb Everest, reaching the summit at 8848 meters (29,029 feet), making this the longest climb ever, starting below sea level, and proceeding to the highest point on the planet. The entire expedition took six months to complete.
The video is fairly low quality, but still a great adventure.
Update: Higher quality video found and added.
