360 Degree View From Top of Mount Everest


This is a 360 degree view from atop Mt. Everest! Fantastic!

Mt. Everest stands 8.85 kilometers above sea level, roughly the maximum height reached by international airplane flights, but much less than the 300 kilometers achieved by a space shuttle. Hundreds of people have tried and failed to climb the behemoth by foot, a feat first
accomplished successfully in 1953. About 1000 people have now made it to the summit.

Roddy Mackenzie, who climbed the mountain in 1989, captured the above image. Mt. Everest lies in the Himalayan mountains in the country of Nepal. In the native language of Nepal the mountain's name is "Sagarmatha" which means "forehead of the sea."
