Russian photos climb pyramids, snap pictures.A group of Russian adventurers and photographers visited the Great Pyramids of Egypt last week, outside of Cairo. Waiting until the cover of darkness, they bypassed security guards at the monuments, and scaled them to take these breathtaking pictures.

They had to wait for four hours to find a good time to sneak past the guards, and were careful to stay low once they were on the pyramids. Punishment for climbing on Egypt’s national treasures can range from 1 to 3 years imprisonment.

See below for some of the breathtaking images that they were able to capture. Disclaimer – don’t try this yourselves – it’s dangerous, illegal, and could damage one of the great wonders of the world.
