Video: Expedition to Remote Myanmar
We have another fantastic video courtesy of National Geographic today. This time, the short film follows an expedition of elite climbers into a remote region of Myanmar where they hope to measure the height of a peak called Hkakabo Razi, which is believed to be Southeast Asia's tallest mountain at 5881 meters (19,295 ft). Along the way they face a grueling trek, some unexpected obstacles, and a surprisingly challenging ascent. That all makes for a great adventure video for those of us watching at home, although it looks like it created some struggles for this team. This is a great video for those interested in mountaineering and exploration. Don't miss it.
