Amazing two billion pixel photo lets you zoom into the heart of Mount Everest

This amazing gigapixel photograph of the great white behemoth has left us speechless. Almost

There are few words that can do photographer David Breashear’s interactive panoramic gigapixel photo of Mount Everest justice, so we suggest you stop what you’re doing right now and drink in each and every one of its two billion pixels, right here.

We’ve circled a few highlights above (red for climbers, yellow for base camp) but we’re sure you can find a few other hidden gems among the vast whiteness of the highest point on Earth.

A lot safer than trying to climb up to its 29,029ft peak, we think you’ll agree.
