Mont Blanc

Mont Blanc in numbers: 4,810 metres high, 40 km long, 40 peaks over 4,000 m, 65 glaciers covering an area of 165 km.

The Mont Blanc massif is a true marvel of nature.

At a height of 4,810 metres, Mont Blanc is the peak of the peaks, the highest in Italy and in Europe.

Straddling Italy, France and Switzerland in the central part of a mountain chain with a length of over 40 km, this granite mountain is permanently snow-covered.

The massif boasts some of the highest mountains in the Alps, such as the Brenva and the north face of the Grandes Jorasses, in addition to 40 peaks over 4,000 m in height; a third of the total area is at altitudes over 3,000 m.

While Mont Blanc is less sheer on the French side, the Italian side is characterised by a majestic steep granite rock wall rising to jagged crests and pinnacled peaks which attract mountaineers from all over the world to Courmayeur Mont Blanc.
