Sherpas Path on Everest

Discovery has created a stunning interactive tour of the Sherpas path on Mt. Everest.

The interactive animation shows the path of the deadliest climbing accident, on the world’s highest summit, that 13 Sherpas reportedly killed, after a great avalanche.

On April 18, a deadly avalanche killed 13 and left three Sherpa missing on Mt. Everest, the single deadliest day in the mountain’s history. Discovery was at base camp preparing to film a live event with adventurist Joby Ogywn when disaster struck.
