Mont Blanc Mountain Hiking Area

Hiking around the highest peak of the Alps

Mont Blanc Hiking Area - Monte Bianco: the Italian side

the most dramatic views with its amazing glaciers and high altitude rock walls at high altitude

Monte Bianco (Mont Blanc in french) is the highest peak of the Alps. Mont Blanc Hiking Area probably offers the most dramatic views with its amazing glaciers and high altitude rock walls at high altitude. Here all the mountaineer of Europe and not only, come to challenge their self in the most difficult and huge mountain of the Alps. For this reason Courmayeur and Chamonix, the main towns below the Monte Bianco, are pretty crowded compared with other areas of the Alps. Mont Blanc hiking for sure do not offer the most intimate relation with the mountain.

The Tour of Mont Blanc is among the most popular and famous route of the world due to its natural mountain beauty. Mont Blanc Mountain is a must see for every alpinist of the World. On the other hand, in the high season is reccomended to not follow this route if you want to live the mountain in an autenthic way, with the Trekking Alps spirit. The Monte Bianco Mountain Hiking Area is certainly pretty famous and it is at its best off-season (not in Christmas holiday and in August) and it is not the right area if you want to avoid people and live an experience in solitude your trekking. Especially in Winter and in Summer these mountain areas of the Alps areas are pretty crowded.

Nevertheless Monte Bianco certainly worths the visit and if you have the chance to come hiking in a Spring or Autumn you’ll enjoy the places aroud the highest peak of the Alps with less people and more wildife.

There is less space in the mountains for the animals than in other places and hiking areas of the Alps. Nevertheless all the typical alpine animals can be spotted but not so easily: Ibex, the Chamois, the Marmot, the Fox and the Eagle. The area is full of cable cars used also in summer for tourists and downhill bikers.
