As aerial views go, looking down from the top of the world’s tallest mountain must surely be hard to beat.
Well, a film crew thought they’d have a chance launching a drone. DJI Mavic 3 from the top of Mount Everest in an attempt to capture yet plus from an aerial view.
The challenge of climbing to the top of the 8,849-meter-high mountain and sending the Mavic 3 skyward was documented in a video made by Chinese photography group 8KRAW in association with DJI.
Most of the footage in the video was shot by DJI’s impressive flagship drone, which arrived in November 2021 and comes with a 4/3 Hasselblad CMOS camera for professional-grade footage. Check out the results in the video below:
“This is Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth,” DJI said in comments accompanying the video. “Together with 8KRAW, we developed a detailed flight plan that would allow their videographers to take the ultimate drone flight from the summit, capturing the breathtaking beauty of the mountain and surrounding views as they have not been captured before.”
The drone video shows the DJI machine rising to an altitude of 9,233 meters above sea level, taking it 384 meters above the film crew located on top of the mountain. The results, we’re sure you’ll agree, are simply amazing.
Wang Yuanzong, chief director of the film and founder of 8KRAW, he pointed how the magnificent weather conditions helped make filming possible, adding, “I am so grateful to Mount Everest for accepting us and allowing us to see it from a new perspective.”
