A first-time paraglider captured this stunning footage of an historic Swiss village gliding 5,249 feet over the Alps.
The footage shows Jordan taking off with an experienced pilot, gliding for about 15 minutes - at a height of over 5,000 feet - before landing in the village of Stechelber.
Jordan, a semi-competitive gamer from Plano, Texas recorded his experience on his GoPro Hero 10 and uploaded it to his YouTube channel.
He said: “It was one of the most surreal things I have ever done in my whole life.
“I was so fortunate to be able to have my first paragliding experience in Lauterbrunnen of all places.
“I will be doing it again! The whole valley is in the Alps and surrounded by 72 waterfalls. It was the most beautiful place I have ever seen!”
Jordan filmed the video in May 2022.
