Fancy climbing the world's tallest mountains? No need to get up - Google's done it for you.

After already visiting the Grand Canyon, the Great Barrier Reef and Antarctica, Google has just released a new update to its Street View mapping service which includes images from four of the world's tallest mountains.

The new data is thanks to Google Innovation Lab employee Dan Fredinburg, who hiked Mt Kilimanjaro, Mt Elbrus, Aconcagua (in the Andes) and part of Mt Everest over the last 18 months while carrying a digital camera and a fisheye lens.

The lightweight kit is similar to the set-up Google uses to take photos inside businesses, and weighs much less than the automated backpack worn by a Googler to take pictures of the Grand Canyon for Street View last year.

Take a look at the amazing new pics, below.
