A Russian base jumper set a world record by leaping off a mountain in the Himalayas.

Valery Rozov climbed to the top of Mount Shivling, which is in the Indian part of the Himalayas.

Most people would simply hike back down, but not Rozov. He jumped off.

The mountain is more than 21,300 feet high.
