Peakfinder Earth App

Very often on our treks we stand at the top of a ridge or a view point wanting to know the names of the peaks.
We know the names of the "big ones" and for the others we ask our fellow trekkers, guides etc. who may or may not know the answer.

But in this world of technology and automation there is an answer!

The Peakfinder app for smart phones and tablets both for Apple and Android.

The App has details of more than 2,50,000 mountain peaks and can give you a reading of the peaks once it's knows the location or co-ordinates.

Here is the App at work on Poon Hill looking towards Dhaulagiri in thr Nepal Himalayas:

The details of the app can be found on the web site
