High camp at the base of Nevado Alpamayo, considered one of the most beautiful mountains in the world, in Cordillera Blanca, Peru (by mokelumne-kid).
Our palms are sweating as we look at this vertiginously awesome drone photo of a team of nine mountain climbers atop the Jungfrau (elevation 13,642 ft), one of the main summits of the Bernese Alps in Switzerland. It’s a phenomenal shot that was captured using a camera with a fisheye lens attached to a drone. The climb was sponsored by Swiss mountaineering outfitter Mammut.
