Glacier du Tour

Glacier du Tour

From Albert 1er

Aiguille du Chardonnet

This is the mighty Glacier du Tour in the Mont Blanc region of the French Alps.

From the summit of the Aiguille du Chardonnet (3’824m) to the valley floor is a staggering 2’600 vertical meters and only 80 years ago this beautiful glacier stretched all the way down.

The glacier now starts a vertical kilometre higher up the mountain.
