Tour Du Mont Blanc by Jim Manthorpe

Book Description

At 4807m (15,771ft), Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in western Europe, and one of the most famous mountains in the world, does not stand alone. The snow dome summit is the highest point of a spectacular massif of peaks stretching 60 miles by 20 miles. The height of Mont Blanc and its adjacent peaks, such as the Grand Jorasses and Mont Dolent, allows for the development of vast glaciers that slip imperceptibly from the high slopes and through the side valleys. The trail (105 miles, 168km) that circumnavigates the massif, passing through France, Italy and Switzerland, is the most popular long distance walk in Europe. Anyone who has completed it will understand why; every day the beauty of the mountains, the valleys and the forests is a constant and welcome companion. On the last day of the circuit, when your feet complete that invisible line around the icy massif, every tiring climb - and there are a few - will have been worth the effort. This comprehensive guide includes: 59 maps 10 town and village plans and 49 large-scale walking maps at 1:20,000 showing route times, gradients, where to stay, interesting features. Itineraries for all walkers whether walking the 105 mile-(168km)-route in its entirety, or sampling the highlights on day walks and short breaks. Practical information for all budgets where to stay (campsites, gites, hostels, B&Bs, lodges and hotels), where to eat, what to see. Detailed public transport information for all access points"
