In July 2016, the paraglider Antoine Girard set off on a three-week tour to explore the Karakorum mountains in Pakistan—alone. From the town of Skardu, he headed for the highest peaks of the Karakorum mountain range. His hope is that the up winds will carry him and his chute to the summit—and possibly beyond. If he succeeds, he will set a new altitude record in paragliding, but the air is thin between the 8,000-meter peaks, and take-offs and landings are extremely tricky. Especially when you only have one person to rely on—yourself.

Life is undeniably richer with a little bit of daring.”
