The Massif du Mont Blanc is a mountain group in the border triangle of France, Italy and Switzerland. The massif contains eleven peaks over 4000 metres in height, large parts are covered with glaciers. The most famous peak is the 4810-metre-high Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps and Western Europe. The first ascent of Mont Blanc in August 1786 is considered a symbolic event for the birth of alpinism.
