Google Maps Provides “Street View” of Tallest Mountains

Google Maps now allow users to visit the tallest mountains of the world without have to lift your toes. The navigation app comes with “street views” of the world’s biggest mountains, including Mount Everest, Kilimanjaro, Aconcagua, and Mount Elbrus.

The feature is created from photos several Google employees took during their mountaineering adventures, as well as some of their favorite images from other mountain climbers.

“While there’s nothing quite like standing on the mountain, with Google Maps you can instantly transport yourself to the top of these peaks and enjoy the sights without all of the avalanches, rock slides, crevasses, and dangers from altitude and weather that mountaineers face,” Google said in a blog post.
