That's amazing! People in the Khumbu Icefall, on the mountain, Camp 3 (I think), the size of Basecamp! Gotta spend more time with this picture!

Awesome, thanks for posting! :thatrocks:

Hmm, why? Do you have the nine buttons at the bottom of your browser window? I use Google Chrome and it works great!

Click the button on the right (fullscreen)

Then start zooming in (plus button) and moving around with arrows or just mousedrag.

Start by looking at base camp. Those are the yellow spreckles in the dirt on the left of the end of the Icefall (the glacier end) Keep zooming in, it stays sharp (that's where there 2 billion pixels come in!)
Once you get the scale of things (which is mindblowing) try to find people on the route.

I love this thing!

Don't beat yourself up. My philosophy is there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers!

Enjoy the photo! You can google Everest route maps and then try to follow on the photo. Another hint, the route through the Khumbu Icefall was more on lookers left that season.
