A Billion-Pixel Tour of Mount Everest. Even if you can't go to Everest, you can come close with this amazing interactive image. The most intrepid mountaineers haven't seen the mountain quite like this.
Everest - Buddhists believe a goddess lives in the mountain and she decides who summits, who doesn't, who makes it down safely, and who doesn't. She doesn't take kindly to big egos or those who try to "conquer" her. Humble respect always.
