Learn About Mount Everest in 3D

As some readers of this blog know, one of my long-term dreams is to visit the Himalayas. In the past I've shared some resources for teaching and learning about Mount Everest. Today, I'm excited to share with you a new video podcast series for learning about the Mount Everest region. For their fifth season The Rest of Everest is releasing all of their episodes in 3D video. According to their site, this is the first 3D footage recorded in Tibet.  And unlike a lot of documentaries about Mount Everest, this season of 3D footage was recorded on the infrequently visited east or Kangshung face of Mount Everest. You need nothing more than a cheap pair of red and green 3D glasses, Amazon Snow in the Kingdom: My Storm Years on Everest.

If you're truly interested in learning about the Kangshung face of Mount Everest, I highly recommend reading Snow in the Kingdom: My Storm Years on Everest which was written by a fellow Mainer, Ed Webster.
