Burj Khalifa, located in Dubai, is the tallest building in the world since its official opening on January 4,2010. If you have seen the movie Mission Impossible 3, there was one exciting sceme of Tom Cruise climbing Burj Khalifa using high-tech gadgets. It was not edited with animation,Tom Cruise was actually filmed on Burj Khalifa. Here is the behind the scenes of the movie.

You think that’s pretty cool? How about climbing it without the fancy equipment used for movie?  Alain Robert, a French rock and urban climber known as “the French Spider-Man” accomplished this feat on March 28, 2011. To comply with UAE safety laws Robert, who usually climbs in free solo style, took the unusual step of using a rope and harness for the climb. It took him 6 hours to reach the tallest point on Burj Khalifa. Here is the official video of Alain Robert climbing Burj Khalifa Dubaï.
