Climbing Everest with Street View
Kala Pattar, Nepal
Last year Google Street View went beneath the oceans so this year Google decided to take Street View to the top of the World.
Inspired by their love of mountaineering, a few Googlers decided to capture Street View imagery for Google Maps from some of the world’s tallest peaks. In their quest to bring the highest peaks to Street View they visited Everest Base Camp, Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Elbrus and Mount Aconcagua.
You can view the results of the imagery captured by these intrepid Street View explorers in a new section in Google's Street View Gallery - The World's Highest Peaks.
