(London Telegraph) From afar it seems like a normal photgraph of Mount Everest, however, when you zoom in it allows people sitting at their desks or at home to view the world’s highest mountain like never before.

The image is made up of 477 individual photographs, taken during the climbing season in spring 2012 from vantage points all around the mountain with a 300mm lens.

The panoramic photograph was captured from the Pumori viewpoint. In the foreground is the Khumbu Icefall and it is possible to zoom in and see people roaming around the Everest Base Camp below.
