Mont Blanc Massif

The Mont Blanc massif is a mountain range bordering France, Italy and Switzerland. The highest peak is Mont Blanc itself, reaching 4810 metres – Europes highest mountain. There are many glaciers that descend from the north and south side of the range. One of the most dramatic glaciers is the Glacier des Bossons, which is only a very short walk from the town of Chamonix and is visible from anywhere in town – it's so close you feel like you can reach out and touch it from the cafe!

Compared to other regions in the European Alps, the Mont Blanc Massif is relatively young, defined by their needle like spires, steep valleys, icefalls and glaciers. The French side of the Mont Blanc range has 2 main rivers draining from it – the Arve and the Isere – both are tributaries of the Rhone River (one of Europe's grandest rivers), which makes its way south again, 812 km to France and into the Mediterranean Sea.
