One of the Seven Summits, Mont Blanc
or Monte Bianco
, both meaning "White Mountain", is the highest mountain
in the Alps
and the highest in Europe
west of Russia after the Caucasus
It rises 4,808 m (15,774 ft)
above sea level and is ranked 11th in the world
in topographic prominence
The mountain lies in a range called the Graian Alps
, between the regions of Aosta Valley
, and Savoie
. The location of the summit
is on the watershed
line between the valleys of Ferret
and the valleys of Montjoie
, and Arve
in France. The Mont Blanc massif
is popular for mountaineering
, and snowboarding
The three towns and their communes which surround Mont Blanc are Courmayeur
in Aosta Valley, Italy, and Saint-Gervais-les-Bains
in Haute-Savoie, France. The latter town was the site of the first Winter Olympics
. A cable car
ascends and crosses the mountain range from Courmayeur to Chamonix, through the Col du Géant
. The 11.6 km (7¼ mi) Mont Blanc Tunnel
, constructed between 1957 and 1965, runs beneath the mountain and is a major trans-Alpine transport route.
