What Rattmouth said. Thanks for posting this.

As I scanned around and around I had to remind myself that quite a few people have died trying to get to that view.

And the clouds like shag rug, way down at the bottom.

Holy Jeebus.

Some of the other panoramas on that site are fantastic too. I just randomly clinked on some of the numbers at the top of the page. Good stuff.

Hear about that 15 year old girl that just climbed it Everest a couple days back, too lazy to find an article.

The Times Square one is pretty neat too.

Wow just spent a few hours looking over the site very cool. The World Heritage Tour is a cool project.. travel the world documenting 700+ WH sites and get sponsors to pay yearly fees to showcase the panoramas. %7.1 completed. I just wonder how long this technology will last before bandwidth catches up and this becomes a ghost of the past replaced with real video. A few of them have background sound which is very nice.
