It's nice to see them using some aerial footage. Are they using hot air balloons or planes do you think? Pretty sure no choppers can fly that high.

I think that peak in nepal is pretty low. (compared to other peaks in the area.) I think I read it was barely 20,000. They can fly helicopters up to 22,000 ft i'm pretty sure. Unless discovery channel lied to me.
