Photographer's Note

Photo of the Mont-Blanc catch on a flight Geneva-Budapest.
The solid mass of Mont Blanc is a mountainous solid mass of the Alps, where the Mount Blanc is drawn up, higher top of Europe which culminates to 4 810 m. This solid mass, is relatively restricted in surface since it approximately only extends on 400km2, but extends on three countries: it is located mainly on Haute-Savoie, but also on Savoy, the valley of Italian Aoste and Were worth it Swiss. The valleys which surround the solid mass are connected by the tunnel of Mont Blanc (between Italy and France), and the collar of Montets then Vallorcine (between France and Switzerland).
In fact, the solid mass of Mont Blanc is strongly equipped in tourist installations, in order to accomodate the tourists of the whole world: one counts five cable cars for the only valley of Chamonix, most famous being that climbing with the Needle of the South (3842m) and joining Courmayeur. Several natural reserves were created to preserve the mountain (for example Réservelle Naturelle of the Red Needles). A regional natural reserve covering the whole of the solid mass has been being studied for several years.
