Google Maps Street View now showing mountain tops


After Google opened everyone’s eyes up to some of the more interesting depths of the ocean, the company wants to take us to higher altitudes. Google has announced that Street View will now include views for some of the world’s most significant mountains, including all-important favorites like Mount Elbrus, Mount Kilimanjaro, the Everest Base Camp, Anconcagua, and more.

Google took these images using a simple tripod and camera setup (with a fisheye lens on it to allow them to capture all the breath-taking scenery we can take in, of course). These views can be had on both desktop and mobile versions of Google Maps, so give it a try on your phone or here if you’re curious how the view is from some of these ridiculous mountains.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
