With the north side of Qomolangma recently covered by 5G networks, netizens can now enjoy livestreaming videos from the world's highest mountain.

Offered by China Telecom and China Mobile, two of the nation's leading telecommunication providers, the livestreaming videos display the beauty of the mountain, which is known in the West as Mount Everest.

On April 19, China Telecom teamed up with China Central Television to provide a round-the-clock, live, high-definition broadcast with a 360-degree view.

Meanwhile, China Mobile offered a livestreaming video showing a 360-degree view of Qomolangma between April 19 and 20 via the company's video platform MIGU Video.

In a posting on social media platform Sina Weibo, netizen Gang Duoji said he appreciated the livestreaming videos as Qomolangma was one of his favorite places, but he was unable to visit it as it's too far away.

"Now I can observe its beauty with the 5G livestreaming broadcast on my phone, it is really incredible!" said Gang.
