If you don’t have the time all effort to climb up to the top of Mont Blanc you can still experience the awesome view from the top without leaving the comfort of your computer or mobile device thanks to new Google Street View footage which has been added to Google Maps.
Mont Blanc is Western Europe’s highest peak and in order to capture the unique footage Google has worked with the legendary adventurers, check out the video footage below to learn more.
Declared the “monarch of mountains” by Lord Byron, the Mont Blanc massif is shrouded in mystery, rolling clouds and imposing snowfields. One of Europe’s highest peaks, the wild terrain of the famed mountain range is reserved for ardent mountaineers and intrepid explorers. Starting today in Google Maps, you can get an up-close, 360-degree look at the breathtaking beauty of Mont Blanc.
By working with legendary adventurers, the Street View team was able to capture the spirit of the massif in a way few witness firsthand. Run on the summit with Kilian Jornet—he holds the speed record for ascending and descending Mont Blanc in just 4 hours 57 minutes! Ice climb up a serac with record-setting alpine climber Ueli Steck, or go knee deep in powder alongside 14-time ski mountaineering champion Laetitia Roux and famed guide Patrick Gabarrou.
