Google has released a new app called Verne: The Himalayas. It lets you explore the Himalayas in a completely different way using Google’s map technology and 3D imagery.

The main character in the app is Verne, a 500-foot Yeti. The user can take control of Verne to run up Mt. Everest, take a jetpack ride, discover local information and play instruments – proving it as an educational tool as well as for entertainment.

It definitely provides more adventure than walking around the block playing Pokemon Go!

Want to discover the Himalayas, there’s an app for that!
