Everest captured in two billion pixel image detail
The first American Mountaineer to climber Everest has created the most detailed image of Mount Everest ever, using a mosaic of hundreds of photographs.
The digital version of the photo, captured from the Pumori viewpoint, allows people to view the world's highest peak in magnificient detail.
The project was headed by American mountaineer and filmmaker David Breashears, who, in 1985, became the first American to reach the summit.
The image is made up of 477 individual photographs, taken during the climbing season in spring 2012 from vantage points all around the mountain with a 300mm lens.
In the foreground is the Khumbu Icefall and it is possible to zoom in and see people roaming around the Everest Base Camp below.
