Ama Dablam 360ºx180º summit panorama in full technicolour.
Here’s the one you’ve all been waiting for – a 360º x 180º interactive summit panorama from the top of Ama Dablam.
It’s really cool on a smartphone … but if you have the time and inclination fire up your laptop and have a look in high resolution with all the surrounding peaks labelled. Honestly … it’ll be worth it.
Not only did this involve summiting the fine mountain at the end of a 4 week expedition with all the hardship that is involved in Himalayan mountaineering but, when I took the 350 photos needed, I got through 5 batteries due to the cold.
This obviously got me in to a bit of a panic and I ended up missing a crucial overlap (see the photo. In fact why not click the photo?). Thankfully I backed up the whole project with some summit video and Thomas was then able to reconstruct the crucial missing bits.
