Elia Saikaly Creates A Beautiful Time Lapse Of Mt. Everest

Posted Jun 21, 2013

Mount Everest is one of the most beautiful and tallest mountains in the world.  Elia Saikaly put together this amazing time-lapse video of his climb on the mountain.  The video was hand-picked by Vimeo as a staff pick.

“Experience the beauty of Mt. Everest at night in time-lapse. While most climbers slept, I attempted to capture some of the magic that the Himalayan skies have to offer while climbing to the top of the world,” said Saikaly.  The video was shot with a Canon 5D Mark II.

It is rather hard to describe what the video is like so I’ll let you watch it on your own here:
