PHOTOS: Russian Photographers Illegally Climbed Egypt’s Great Pyramid

Last week in Egypt, a group of Russian photographers apparently climbed the Great Pyramid of Giza—hiding from guards for four hours after closing time before beginning the ascent.

Climbing the pyramid, one of the photographers claims, carries a punishment of one to three years. But it was worth it. "I was speechless," one wrote.

"I felt a chilling delight, absolute happiness."

Here are some of their photos:

Since they were visible to guards, the photographs took most of their pictures from a prone position:
