A Helicopter Flight to Mount Everest

“Mount Everest is the one with the sharp peak with snow blowing at the top. We can go almost at 20,000 ft but Mt Everest stood really tall from where our helicopter flies.”


  1. On my plane flight back home after Christmas break, I noticed I was 5000 ft higher than the top of Mt Everest. It cost me at least $50,000 less than climbing the mountain would have, and I didn't have to lose any fingers or toes.

  2. Some impressivley responsive exoskeletons at this year's CES that could be an assist for someone with bad knees, or maybe even paralyzed legs, to be able to finish the rest of the ascent to the peak of Everest some day soon.
