Add another check to your bucket list without spending a dime.
Google just released the first-ever Street View images for Mount Everest, located in the Mahalangur section of the Himalayas on the border of Tibet. And while you may not be able to climb to the summit of this amazing peak, you can explore the Khumbu region of Nepal in the mountain’s shadow and Mount Everest’s base camp.
Our Mount Everest workout program will push you past your limits. If you’re ready to take on a new challenge, then get ready to hike over 71 miles and climb more than 19,000 vertical feet in just 20 workouts. This grueling program is not for the faint of heart, because you will be required to ask more from yourself. But let me tell you, the views are absolutely worth the work. And just remember, when the going gets tough, at least you aren’t carrying a pack on your back.
To join us, add the program on iFit, jump on your iFit-enabled equipment and enjoy the workout as your machine will show Google Street View ™ all along the way, while automatically adjusting the incline/decline to match the outdoor terrain.
Through the misty air and lush terrain, you’ll start your journey at the Tenzing-Hillary Airport, located in Lukia, Nepal. And with the program being all trail, you’ll wander through small towns, seeing a way of life completely different from your own.
As you follow other fellow backpackers, don’t be surprised to pass some pack mules along the way that you’ll wish were carrying you. Continuing on your journey, you’ll trek through multiple cities as you head towards the mountain. From Phakding to Benkar, Khumjung to Panboche, and all the way to Thame, you’ll wind past monasteries, lodges, and schools, gaining an appreciation for the lifestyle in this beautiful region. You’ll see more than just the drizzling weather you begin in, as sunshine and desert-like landscapes cover much of the landscape with snow-capped mountains in view. Your expedition ends in Gorak Shep, a frozen lake bed covered with sand in Nepal.
Now all that’s left to do is join the program, stretch your legs, and get ready for inclines and views that will take your breath away!
