Top 5 Places To Look Up On Google Maps
People like to travel to new places and see new things. But if travel is beyond your means there is one place you could go, Google Maps. Through your computer, you can travel to places that normally cost a lot and see things from angles humans themselves normally can’t.
Let the satellites in space show you the locations you may have never seen before. Here are some ideas with the Top 5 Places to look up on Google Maps.
#5 – The Great Wall Of China
It’s long been said that the only man-made thing you could see from space was the Great Wall of China. Although the size of the great wall is very impressive, here is a picture showing the rumors are very well not true.
#4 – The Pyramids Of Egypt
The Great Pyramids of Egypt are a little harder to see as they are made of the sands that surround them. The surprise for many who have never actually been there is that the Pyramids of the ancient Pharaohs are surrounded by a lot of civilization.
The city of Giza straddles the dessert and lot of people live in the area. There is also the Nile river which has irrigated woodlands along its shore. Not what you picture when thinking of the Great Pyramids sitting in the middle of a sand-filled desert.
#3 – Leaning Tower Of Piza
The image of the Italian tower that leans over to one side is an image that most of us have seen. Looking at it from way above in space is an image many might also enjoy.
What isn’t seen is that the area is not spacious. There is a lot of structures surrounding the Tower itself including the Piazza Del Duomo Cathedral, the Campo Santo, and The Baptistery of San Giovanni all on the grounds of the Tower itself. The building may lean a lot, but it is not a lonely one.
#2 – Mount Everest
While a lot of people try to test themselves and climb Earth’s mightiest mountain from the ground, most of us would rather take a look from above and on a computer. The view actually isn’t much. It is just a bunch of snow along the border between the countries of China and Nepal. But it is still a part of the world that most people have not seen, especially from above.
While many have lost there lives climbing up the mountain, thankfully none of them seem to be caught on camera so chances are you won’t see any frozen bodies on your search.
#1 – Mount Fuji
The well-known mountain in Japan is as big as it looks even from space. What a lot of people outside of the area itself don’t tell you is that there are actual places to go high up on the mountain. A quick scan shows off a Public Restroom for people to do their business in and the Fujisancho Post Office. Can you imagine what a mail run to that place must be like?
