Mt. Everest in 2 Billion Pixels

Check out this extremely cool mega-photo of Mt. Everest. It's the most detailed image ever made of the highest mountain in the world. The image is actually a composite mosaic of 477 individual photographs taken this past spring from vantage points all around the mountain using a 300mm lens. The project was led by American mountaineer and filmmaker David Breashears.

If you zoom in towards the base of Lhotse you can see several climbers. Also, if you look towards the left (below) of the Khumbu Icefall you'll also be able to see Everest base camp.

Here's a map to help navigate the interactive photo:
