If you havent got a chance to visit Mount Everest region, you can now travel virtually with Google street view map. Google Street View Map of Mount Everest Region went live recently. The closest to Mount Everest you will get on this virtual trek is Gorak Shep.
Google partnered with Apa Sherpa, who holds the record for reaching the summit of Mount Everest more than anybody else (21 times!). Together with his Apa Sherpa Foundation and the Nepalese nonprofit Story Cycle, Google mapped and photographed the region on a 10-day expedition. In the process, Google created these new Street View images and improved its maps in the region.
