New Everest Panorama Soon!


January 2021
Calling for ideas of what people want to see and learn about in the next interactive, gigapixel panorama of Mount Everest.

When I posted the last interactive Everest panorama back on January 2, 2021, a lot of you dove deep into it, enjoyed it, and asked for more.

So, ask and ye shall receive! Well, soon ye shall receive.

I'm working on a new gigapixel panorama, this time from the Tibetan, or North, side of Mount Everest. After publishing the last one, I've been diving into how to better customize the skin and interface for the panorama to make it a bit more user friendly, and adding more features and information to the final product, including video, outbound links, and more.

Doing that, though, takes a bit of time (more than I anticipated), but I'm hoping to have it ready to go early next week.

In the meantime, please let me know in the comments what you'd like to see or learn about with the Everest North Side panorama.

  • What intrigues you about that side of the mountain?
  • Are there specific points of interest you'd like more information about?
  • What was missing from the last panorama that you'd like included in this one?
  • Any other thoughts or questions or things you would like to see?

I'll do my best to get it all in if you let me know. And, while you're at it, take a look at the other panorama and let me know what you want added to that one as well!

Thanks, and have a great weekend!

  1. Bonjour Jake. I would like you to show us on your next panorama of the north face, the place where Mallory's body was discovered and the Irvine's body search area. Amitiés.

  2. We'd love to know more about how the mountain is managed and perceived, considering the different nations and cultures that encompass it. How do those intersect? What differences of perspective are there? Where does that enrich the experience when you are there climbing from different sides vs. make it challenging? Also, are there any interesting notes about the tectonic formation (or even weather patterns) that you can see differently from this side? Looking forward to it!

It’s been almost 100 years - we’ll hit the centenary this Saturday, June 8, 2024 - since George Mallory and Andrew Irvine famously vanished in the mists less than 1,000 feet from the summit of Mount Everest. Their disappearance understandably sparked a century of debate - a debate which continues rigorously to this day - […]
