"This gigapixel image of the Khumbu glacier was captured by David Breashears during the spring of 2012, from the Pumori viewpoint near Mount Everest. The Khumbu Icefall is clearly visible here, and one can easily see the hustle and bustle of Everest Base Camp below."

Have a look, zoom in and explore the highest mountain on earth from your desk! We thought it was pretty cool.
