Everest Climbers Are Tracking Their Journey On Snapchat And It's Incredible
You want to experience all the breathtaking beauty our planet has to offer. You want to make your own path in the frozen tundra. You want to be awe-struck by the view of a sunrise thousands of feet in the air. But you're also a little bit lazy and a little bit broke. It's cool! #EverestNoFilter has you covered.
Expert climber Adrian Ballinger and National Geographic photojournalist Cory Richards are using brand-new satellite technology to share their latest journey via Snapchat. Follow #EverestNoFilter for real-time updates as Cory and Adrian scale the summit of the most iconic mountain in the world.
Cory and Adrian's team arrived at Everest base camp on April 13. Since then, their snaps have provided an unfiltered look inside what it takes to prepare for an extreme expedition.
Remarkably, they're attempting to make the climb without supplemental oxygen, a physical challenge that is increasingly rare.
Cory and Adrian are using the platform not only to snap awesome views, but also to raise awareness and funds for the local communities that were devastated by the 2015 earthquake in Nepal. Their Snapchat story features special glimpses into local people and charities.
