After taking us up Yosemite’s El Capitan rock wall for an epic climb last year, Google’s Street View team has another uphill adventure for you to enjoy: the majestic Mont Blanc peak.

At a staggering 4,810m, it’s the highest mountain in Western Europe. Google partnered with several photographers, skiers, mountaineers, climbers and runners to create the stunning 360-degree imagery.

All Killer, No Filler

The newly-added library includes images of Mont Blanc trails in different seasons, as well as incredible views from french climber Catherine Destivelle’s perspective as she scales the nearby 3,842m Aiguille du Midi peak.

Sadly, as Mont Blanc’s glaciers are receding due to climate change, it’s possible that we won’t be able to enjoy these vistas captured by Google for much longer. Near the end of last year, Google shared Street View imagery depicting the loss of natural environs across the globe.

If you’re ready for an eyeful of glorious mountain tops and snow-white slopes, head over to the image gallery to take in the sights.
