Climb Mont Blanc on Street View

You can now climb the highest mountain in the Alps from the comfort of your own home using Street View. Google has teamed up with a group of alpine photographers, climbers and skiers to bring you some stunning panoramic imagery from Mont Blanc.

Google's latest Alpine Street View includes vertiginous imagery from the actual climb and some stunning panoramic views from the summit of Mont Blanc. You can explore Google's new Street View imagery directly on Google Maps (click on the pictures above) or you can find links to some of the highlights in the new Mont Blanc imagery on this special Google Street View Mont Blanc page.

If this new Street View imagery has got you in the mood for more virtual mountain climbing then you might also enjoy Google's Street View climb of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park.
