One of the highest BASE jumps ever completed was in 2006 when Glenn Singleman and Heather Swan jumped from 6,604 meters (about 21,666 feet) up Mount Meru in the Indian Himalayas. They climbed for more than 20 days and flew down to the BASE camp for about two minutes, reaching speeds of about 125 mph. You can see a BASE jump from a point at the top of the East Face of Meru Peak in this video.
