Browsing the "Mont Blanc Massif" Tag

The Mont-Blanc Massif is a mountainous massif culminating at 4810 m at the top of Mont Blanc and offers a multitude of hikes with breathtaking landscapes. Stretching over an area of approximately 400 km2, the Mont-Blanc Massif covers the French departments of Haute-Savoie and Savoie, Valle d’Aosta in Italy, as well as the canton of Valais in Switzerland. The massif includes many glaciers, such as the Mer de Glace or the Glacier du Tour, which, unfortunately, are threatened with extinction by the end of the century due to global warming. The Mont-Blanc massif undoubtedly remains one of the most beautiful massifs in the Alps and remains one of the most visited in the world, as evidenced by the many routes leading to the Mont Blanc. Observed from the Aiguilles Rouges, the Val Vény or the Val Ferret, the Mont-Blanc massif offers magnificent views of its rock and snow giants within easy reach of the hiker.
