Laila Peak Expedition in Pakistan: Aerial Video


Former Drone Video of the Week Finalist Jackson Groves brings us this magnificent drone video record of a two week mountain climbing trek in the mountains of northern Pakistan.  The objective of the trek was to scale Laila Peak, which is part of the Karakoram, a range situated between the Pamir and the Himalayan Mountains.  With a maximum elevation of 20k ft. above sea level (6.1k m), it is considered one of the world's most challenging climbs.  While this expedition did not reach the peak, the drone views are simply spectacular.

An aerial view of our Laila Peak Expedition in Karakoram, Pakistan. We spent 2 weeks attempting a summit of Laila Peak but were unsuccessful. The views from Camp 2 (5,400m) made up for it! I filmed this video on the Mavic Air 2S.
