Google continues to reach new remote places with Street View, a product which has long outgrown its name. It went to the South Pole, to the frozen Canadian North, to museums and castles, even to the Grand Canyon.
Now, Google reached another milestone by visiting some of the most famous and the tallest mountains in the world, including Everest.
"Now you can explore some of the most famous mountains on Earth, including Aconcagua (South America), Kilimanjaro (Africa), Mount Elbrus (Europe) and Everest Base Camp (Asia) on Google Maps," Google announced
"These mountains belong to the group of peaks known as the Seven Summits—the highest mountain on each of the seven continents," it explained.
Any one mountain would have been a huge achievement for Google. Reaching all of them is quite impressive. All in all, it's clear that there are a few happy Googlers out there, the ones that got to visit all of the sites.
Now, you can visit all of the seven sites as well, albeit, only on your laptop or phone. But there are some advantages, no miles of hiking or freezing cold, for one.
