Base Jumping Daredevil Sets Jump Record On Mount Everest [VIDEO]
Russian daredevil Valery Rozov has set a new world record with a base jump 7,220 meters above sea level from Mount Everest. The 48-year-old has jumped off the north face of the mountain to record the world's highest ever base jump ever. 7220 meters is approximately a height of 23,688 feet above sea level. Wow!
According to redbull.com;
The current Guinness record for highest altitude BASE jump is 21,666 feet, set by Glenn Singleman and Heather Swan when they donned wing suits and jumped from a ledge of India’s Mount Meru. Rozov spent more than two years preparing for the Everest jump, including a considerable amount of time and effort devoted to developing a special new Wingsuit that makes him fly like a bird.
