Only birds and aerial vehicles can soar around the European Alps, but a thrilling point-of-view video lets you vicariously take flight over the amazing vista from the alleged perspective of an eagle.

The point-of-view footage, uploaded by YouTube user Srachi, supposedly shows an action camera (e.g. a GoPro) attached to the back of an eagle that’s flying around at extreme heights. According to the video description, the near 1.5-minute clip took place near the Chamonix village located at the Mer de Glace glacier of Mont Blanc in the French portion of the Alps.
