KATHMANDU - In an apparent error, Google Maps has shown world’s highest peak Mount Everest as being located in China.
When ‘Mt Everest’ was searched in Google Maps on Saturday, the site returned with the result that Mt. Everst is in Tingri, Xigaze in China.
Meanwhile, social media users have been taking exception to this apparent error. “Google is showing Mt.Everest in china which is located in Nepal. Lets make a loud social attack on google,” tweeted Akshay Kumar Nepal.
A tweeter user who tweets at @0_0_uzzwal wrote, “Mistake by Google :- Google map is saying "Mt. Everest" is located on Tingri, Xigaze China !”
