Hundreds of mountaineers went there and many more want to go there. But little people so far had the opportunity to enjoy the view from the summit of Mount Everest without being in a hurry. Now, everybody can study the view – the first 360 panorama view without any clouds from top of Mount Everest is here.
You do not need to suffer low oxygen supply, bad weather and storms, congestion of climbers or simply exhaustion. There is no need any more to study every map, photo, drawing you get hold of. The pictures on the top lead you to an interactive photography of the drawing. The commented break-down of the drawing elucidates the main mountains (the numbers specify the rank of the mountain).

Mont Blanc region has been the source for Alpine tourism since the first summit in 1786. This tourism spurred the economical development of the whole alp region.
Today the most interesting white mountain is Dhaulagiri.

The sixth highest mountain of earth is located in central Nepal. Its surroundings like the Gandaki valley are already a very popular travel destination for local people.
