Everest Night

Mount Everest is currently Earth’s highest mountain above sea level, located in the Mahalangur Himal sub-range of the Himalayas. The international border between China (Tibet Autonomous Region) and Nepal (Province No. 1) runs across its summit point. Photographer Elia Saikaly spent several nights in the area to capture some amazing footage, which has been compiled into a short film called “Everest,” shot with several Canon DSLRs.

“Everything was shot with a Canon 1D C, two 5D Mark IIIs, a 5DS R, a 24mm lens, a 16mm lens, and an 11-24mm lens. Saikaly released an earlier time-lapse short film about Mt. Everest five years ago, and that video has since received over 1 million views,” reports Peta Pixel. You can see more of his work at www.eliasaikaly.com and @eliasaikaly on Instagram.
