Have you ever wanted to climb Everest or see what the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro looks like? Well, Google Street View is now making that possible.
Whether you are planning your next big adventure and want to see what you might be in for or you are just curious what a trek up one of these mountains might look like, you can now do these treks from the comfort of your living room.
Google maps has now imaged 4 of the Seven Summits (these are the highest mountain on each of the 7 continents) meaning that you can walk in the footsteps of legendary explorers without having to stand up. Now this is pretty incredible, but if you are anything like the Encounters Team, these images will only whet your appetite for adventure and you may want to experience these treks in person.
Encounters Travel can take you to two of these mountains on one of our group guided tours.
