A hot Jacuzzi and a bit of bubbly at 15000 feet atop Mont Blanc!

Twenty mountaineers climbed 15,000 ft on the top of Mont Blanc to construct the Jacuzzi.

They melted ice to get the water, heated it with wood fuelled stoves and then leapt in to enjoy the bath.

Finally, they marked their accomplishment by having a few glasses of bubbly in the bubbles.

“It was freezing working against the wind but we got to enjoy it in the end” the Mirror quoted a spokesman for the group, who call themselves Jacuzzi Events, as saying.

“At such an extreme height, it was difficult to get the burners working to heat the volume of snow we needed. The logistical challenge was a big one.

“We had to carry lots of boxes, pipes and fuel, plus bottles of wine and beer without any help from an helicopter,” the spokesperson added. (ANI)
