Live Mount Everest Webcam

Long-time readers of Free Technology for Teachers might know that one of my pet topics and lifetime goals is to visit the Himalayas. Therefore, I tend to jump on any opportunity to share resources for teaching and learning about Mount Everest.

A team of scientists studying climate change in Nepal have established a live webcam feed featuring Mount Everest. The camera is only operational during daylight hours in Nepal (roughly 6am to 6pm local time) but if you can grab the feed at the right time you can get some great looks at the mountain. The same researchers are also posting real-time climate data about Mount Everest and other mountains in the region.
