Discover the Secrets of Mount Everest on Google Street View

Google’s nearly ubiquitous Street View service is slowly conquering what little of the world it’s got left to conquer. In a joint effort with Sherpa mountaineer Apa Sherpa, the Google Maps team captured imagery of the Khumbu region of Nepal, where Mount Everest is located.


Apa Sherpa, who’s reached the summit of Mount Everest a record 21 times, helped Google collect breathtaking views of the mountains in Khumbu, as well as local monasteries, lodges, schools and more.

You can take this virtual trip in two ways: Either drop the little yellow figure along the marked expedition route in Khumbu and start exploring, or take a guided tour here. Unfortunately, you can’t virtually explore the summit of Mount Everest just yet, but you can get pretty close.

Find more about the expedition in Google’s official blog post, as well as the video, below.

    Stunning. We can finally see places we may not be able to get to in our lifetime.
