VIDEO: Russian Daredevils Scale Shanghai Tower

Russians Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov planned a trip to visit China’s biggest cities. The main purpose of the journey was to climb the world’s highest construction building – The Shanghai Tower in Shanghai. Currently under construction, its height is a little more than 650 meters, making it the world’s second highest building after the Burj Khalifa in UAE.

Vitaliy said: “Aware of the strict Chinese laws, we prepared carefully and picked an appropriate date, the Chinese New Year’s day. As it was a national holiday the security was less watchful, all the workers were on vacation, and the cranes were out of action. We got to the crane at around midnight. It took us almost two hours to get to the 120th floor by foot. We spent almost 18 hours on top of the building, sleeping and waiting for better weather. The result you can see in our video.”
