Prepare your gear; Google wants to take you to the peak of Mount Kinabalu.
Google’s latest Street View will let anyone virtually climb the highest mountain in Malaysia and explore the rest of Malaysia’s most eastern state of Sabah, aka the “Land Below the Wind.”
“From today you too can catch your breath, in awe, at the beauty of Sabah with the launch of new Street View imagery from 23 islands and nature reserves from the area,” Nhazlisham Hamdan, Street View Operations Lead Malaysia, Indonesia & Thailand, wrote in the company’s blog.
Mount Kinabalu sits in Kinabalu Park and it’s considered a UNESCO world heritage site. Some of the unique flora and fauna in the area include gigantic Rafflesia plants and orangutans.
Just as there is no mountain high enough, there is no river wide enough that Google won’t explore.
Street View will also let Google Maps users cruise down the Kinabatangan River, which is the longest river in Sabah. Along the way, users might see Proboscis monkeys, Sumatran rhinos and Asian elephants. There are also images of an orangutan reserve nearby.
To see the entire collection Internet users can go directly to the Sabah archive.
