Details

Combining technology developed by the German Aerospace Center with the experiences of great mountaineers, this volume profiles 13 mountains, including the ‘eight-thousanders’ Everest, K2, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and the ‘killer mountain’ Nanga Parbat. The chapter for each peak comprises photographs, a history of early ascents, geographical information and a mountaineer’s personal account of their climb: in effect, a history of mountaineering, accompanied by 3D maps created from high-resolution satellite data and ‘virtual’ images of some of Earth’s most challenging terrain.
