Watch This Vertigo-Inducing 360-Degree Tree-Climbing Video


Adventurer, filmmaker, and nature lover Allan Dixon makes jaw-dropping 360-degree videos of his many strange excursions. He's produced videos of himself surrounded by lemurs and biking through Ireland. Thanks to him, you can even experience what it's like to be at the center of a stampede of chickens.

In his latest video, Dixon takes his filmmaking to new heights, attaching a 360-degree GoPro rig to his helmet as he climbs a 75 meter (approximately 246 feet) tree in Warren National Park, just outside of Pemberton in Western Australia. Viewers can control their perspective while watching the video, adjusting the screen to look up as Dixon moves through the branches, or glancing down to see the forest floor rapidly receding. The video is vertigo-inducing to be sure—and Dixon climbs without ropes—but it also shows off some pretty breathtaking views. Check it out above.
