Google maps Burj Khalifa, the world's largest skyscraper located in Dubai, in this exciting and thrilling video. Making use of Trekker backpacks, the Google Maps team is able to capture the incredible views from the top of the building.

Measuring in at 2,717 feet with 160 accessible floors, the Burj Khalifa is a remarkable skyscraper with an equally remarkable view. Google Maps has become pioneers in capturing some of the most unreachable places on earth using their Trekker backpacks with a camera attached to the top of them. "The Burj Khalifa is special because it is the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, and we are here to bring to the user this possibility to see this huge, immense, wonderful building inside-out and it is the first time we are in this type of building in an Arabic country indoor and outdoor... I think it will be huge for the user," Google Street View Program Manager, Pascal Malite, says in the video.
