Now Explore The Mt. Everest Region Using Google’s Street View

Not the outdoorsy type, but still love to take in a great scenery? Google Street View then should be your best friend, helping you travel to some of the most remote locations on earth, from the comfort of your couch.
Google Street View now features Khumbu, or the Everest Region of Nepal, showing us interactive images of Mt. Everest as well as the Sherpa communities that live around its base.
The company partnered with Apa Sherpa, who holds the record for reaching the summit of Mt. Everest the most number of times (21 to be precise), his foundation and Nepalese non-profit Story Cycle to map and photograph the region on a 10-day expedition.
Monasteries, schools and the yak dotted along the dusty trails of the region are sights you can now see via Street View, but you can’t actually scale Mt. Everest (yet).
