Elia Saikaly writes beneath his video (a sequel to a video he made in 2013) on Vimeo, “While most climbers slept, I attempted to capture some of the magic that the Himalayan skies have to offer while climbing to the top of the world.”

He also offered some details about what actually goes into making such a beautiful time lapse:

•108 total time-lapses and set ups over two years in the Himalayas •44,069 still images created •Edited down to 26 shots, 1,896 stills or 2 mins and 18 seconds pending how you do the math

That means 82 shots or 42,173 stills are on the cutting room floor!
