World’s highest webcam is set up on Mount Everest

German company Mobotix has set a new record by placing a webcam in the Himalayas to film the highest peak on Earth – Mount Everest.

The camera was located on Kala Patthar, a mountain in the Himalayas, at an altitude of 5643 meters, where it transmits HD images of Mount Everest, whose altitude measures 8848 meters.

The device operates in temperatures as low as minus 30C and it’s powered by solar energy. It’s only active during daylight hours.

Being constructed to endure sub-zero temperatures and high winds, the camera will stream images between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., updating every 5 minutes.

The images captured by webcam will be used with data recorded by the weather station on Mount Everest in a project that is gathering climate and environmental information on the famous peak.

“We spent months developing the perfect setup for the installation and invested a lot of time testing and verifying the system. And it inspired us on to set a record: operating the highest webcam in the world,” said Giampietro Kohl, leader of the technical committee who coordinated the webcam’s installation by Italian engineers.
