Google released a way to visit the tallest of the Seven Summits. The world’s biggest mountains are starting to come into view on Google Maps, including Mount Everest, Kilimanjaro, Aconcagua, and Mount Elbrus.

“While there’s nothing quite like standing on the mountain, with Google Maps you can instantly transport yourself to the top of these peaks and enjoy the sights without all of the avalanches, rock slides, crevasses, and dangers from altitude and weather that mountaineers face,” the company said in a blog post.

Google also posted a gallery of some favorite images from the company’s mountaineering photo shoots, and a separate blog post from one of the members of the team who went on the journey.
