A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Everest) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Everest. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from EverestOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Everest.
