Chamonix is dominated by the white majestic dome of Mont Blanc, at four,810m the best mountain in western Europe.

Each and every yr the summit of Mont Blanc gets to be the final aim for mountaineers the planet more than, all striving to stand on leading of the roof of Europe and search down on all of the important summits of the Alps.

To climb Mont Blanc from Chamonix, individuals typically selected 1 of the two most prevalent routes. Slightly more technological, the route from the Aiguille du Midi, more than Mont Blanc du Tacul and Mont Maudit is commonly quieter, and really dependent on situations.

The marginally less difficult and more trusted solution is through the Tramway du Mont Blanc to the Nid d’Aigle, then up the Aiguille du Gouter and the Bosse ridge.

While not technically tough, ascending Mont Blanc demands a high amount of actual physical physical fitness and knowledge using crampons and an ice axe.

Thanks to Marie for this magnificent shot !!!
