Explore Everest from your armchair

Ever fancied a tour Everest but don't have the time, money or abilities to do the real thing? Fear not - even armchair explorers can now get up close and personal with the world's highest peak.

A new interactive photo of Everest allows you to stand on the Pumori viewpoint above Everest Base Camp and gaze out at the mighty peak in her glorious surroundings. Shot and put together by photographer David Breashears for environmental group Glacierworks, the huge photographs are so detailed that you'll feel as though you're actually there.

Want a closer look at those brightly coloured dots on the glacier? No problem, zoom into the image and check out the vast numbers of variously shaped tents scattered across the ice and rock.

There really is only one option - try it out for yourself. To see the original 120,000 x 31,840 pixel image (that's 3.8 BILLION pixels!) click HERE and get zooming.
