This is not really his first time to BASE jumping and wingsuit flying. The 47-year-old Russian’s breathtaking feats, such as flying into an active volcano in Kamtschatka (2009) and jumping from Ulvetanna Peak in the Antarctic (2010), have made him famous the world over.

Valery Rozov and his team (Alexander Ruchkin and Victor Volodin) took a 30 day expedition (including a six-day ascent) on the summit of Shivling in the Indian part of the Himalayas on May 25 at 13:30. It was then that Rozov found a perfect spot wherein he took off at 6420mt. Within 90 seconds, with a speed of 200 km/h, he landed 2200m further down the glazier. It was really a perfect way to go down a summit because the other expedition members took three whole days to complete the descent.
