At a height of 4,810m, Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in France. Located in the French Alps, it also extends into Italy and Switzerland.
The Aiguille du Midi, the highest of the Chamonix peaks on Mont Blanc, is also the location of a radio broadcasting centre.
From the Midi cable car, visitors can ascend to the Panoramic Mont Blanc, the highest cable car in the world, high above the glaciers. From there, skiers hurtle down the powdery slopes of the legendary Vallée Blanche.
Visitors can also ascend to the Mer de Glace (France's highest glacier) by boarding the Montevers railway, an institution since 1909.
If you are on the lookout for even more sensations, let yourself be tempted by the Mont-Blanc tramway, the highest railway line in France ascending to the "eagle's nest" at 2 372m above sea level!
Decidedly, Mont Blanc breaks all records!
