Virtual Trek

Posted by – March 14, 2015

This week Google announced it had collaborated with accomplished Nepalese mountaineer Apa Sherpa to create a virtual trek through Nepal using Google Map’s Streetview. Apa Sherpa, who has summited Mt. Everest 20 times, spent 10 days with Google last year to capture the images, which are now available on Google Maps. The effect is stunning, allowing you to virtually hike through valleys and towns near Mt. Everest, such as Thame, Khumjung and Phortse.

And for those of you hoping for a virtual tour of that other Trek, you might try here or here.
