No mountain has received as much attention from the public eye as the great Mount Everest. This is easily explained by Everest's ability to draw in more than a select group of ambitious mountaineers. Instead, it enthralls outdoor enthusiasts from a range of backgrounds and activities alike. Our 3D maps assist during tour planning and are particularly well suited for those looking to gain an overview of the Khumbu region. We also offer 3D flight simulations or tailored perspectives of the region upon request. These can be particularly useful when reporting on real-time events. We also offer live tracking services for mountaineers aspiring to travel in the region. This includes recording and displaying your current location on our 3D maps.
SPOT personal trackers allow us to display a mountaineer’s current position in our 3D map and lets those back home follow your expedition in real-time.
This year we'll be accompanying Australian-born Andreas Breitfuss via live tracking for the second time since his expedition in 2012. Follow his ascent along the North route in real-time on our 3D map or learn more here: www.everestbound.com/mt-everest/
UPDATE: After sustaining an injury during training, Andreas will unfortunately need to postpone his tour until next year.
Originally from the North of Germany, Jost became acquainted with the Arctic Spitsbergen following his time with the German mountain infantry. He has been an avid climber since he was eleven years old, advancing rapidly and quickly summiting numerous peaks across Europe, Africa and Central Asia. His most recent accomplishment – a free solo ascent of Ama Dablam (6,812 m) – even earned him a world record.
In 2015, 3D RealityMaps tracked Jost Kobusch’s attempt to scale Lhotse (8,516 m) solo. The mountaineer has his eyes set on Annapurna this season, but will be on the Khumbu region’s classic trekking routes this March to “warm up” first. For more information, visit www.jostkobusch.com/mt-everest/
Daniel Hughes from London, England, has been training for the past two years in preparation for the greatest challenge of his life – the ascent to Mount Everest. His goal is to gain the support of one million individuals, each of whom will donate one pound to his charity, Everest Million.
