1. Meru Peak in the Himalayan Mountains
The site of the highest jump ever recorded. This offers a drop of over 21,000 feet from peak to bottom. The jump has only been done once and that was in 2006. Two BASE jumpers, Graham Singleman and his wife Heather Swan, took 22 days to climb to the top of the Peak before leaping off the edge and entering into the record books two minutes later when they touched bottom.
