Explore Mount Everest on Google Street View

About Street View Nepal · Reply

Today Google announced new Street View images, this time from the Mount Everest area in Nepal. You can see the impressive mountain area and take a walk around the villages. You can’t yet climb to the top of Mount Everest on Google Street View. I’m sure Google is working on it…

A legendary mountaineer named Apa Sherpa (age 55) helped Google with these images. He’s reached the summit of Mount Everest more than anyone else – 21 times!


You can step inside monasteries, local schools and even say hi to some yaks at the “Yak parking lot”!


And there’s a video of the adventure:

Now you can climb the highest mountains on Google Street View. This is the Base Camp of Mount Everest in Nepal.


According to Google: “While on the Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal you can stand face to face with Mount Everest, the “Goddess Mother of the Earth”, from the easily reached high-point of 18,192-foot Kala Pattar. Trekkers climb this peak before dawn to catch a glimpse of Everest at sunrise.”
