Mount Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro, Elbrus and Everest are all explorable on Google Maps' "street view" tool, thanks to a neat update.
The company announced this week that it had added 360-degree views of several popular mountain passes and peaks. A group of Google employees took the photos with a lightweight tripod and fish-eye lens over a series of hikes in 2011.
While the scenery is beautiful, the most interesting shots might be the ones that show signs of activity. Some provide a glimpse into how hikers, researchers and guides live in the remote passes.
