Description: 

Google's nearly ubiquitous Street View service is slowly conquering what little of the world it's got left to conquer. In a joint effort with Sherpa mountaineer Apa Sherpa, the Google Maps team captured imagery of the Khumbu region of Nepal, where Mount Everest is located. You can take a virtual trip in two ways: either drop the little yellow figure along the marked expedition route in Khumbu and start exploring, or take a guided tour by using the link.
