Have you ever gone on vacation somewhere like Egypt and been like “oh hey i feel like climbing a huge pyramid”? Well that’s exactly what a young German tourist did. The young man in question , 18-year-old Andrej Ciesielski, climbed on top of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, but was caught by police when he descended. He managed to share his climb by posting pictures and videos to Facebook and YouTube.
“The view from the top to the other pyramid–it was really, really amazing,” he said in the video.
Ciesielski claimed that it took him just eight minutes to reach the top of the 481-foot pyramid. Mind you, climing to the top is illegal and can result a three year jail sentence. However Ciesielski was arrested, his photos were deleted and he spent only about an hour in a police station and was not charged with any crime. But he managed to recover the photos and video and thus he posted them like crazy.
The Great Pyramid of Giza is the one of the oldest and largest pyramids in the entire world. Some experts claim it was constructed around 2550 BC.
How do you feel about this? Alot of people are angry at Ciesielski for desecrating/disrupting the pyramid. Yes I believe that history should not be disturbed and should be respected. I don’t recommend that people go out and do this, but you gotta admit this is fucking cool. He didn’t really disturb or destroy anything from what we can tell. So regardless how you feel about this – enjoy these awesome pics/video that he was able to capture and take in the beautiful view!
