Mont Blanc Nature Site: A Natural Monument Worthy of Respect
A sustainable, eco-friendly itinerary
It’s the highest mountain in the Italian and French Alps. A naturalistic marvel, with its valleys, glaciers, its countless granite gargoyles and icy summits conquered over the years by numerous climbers.
Skyway will be the first cable facility in Italy to draw up a sustainability balance sheet
All these characteristics have led to the decision to preserve and promote this site by nominating the Mont Blanc massif as a UNESCO heritage site, with a joint campaign by the municipalities of Courmayeur and Chamonix.
Mont Blanc is also synonymous with mountaineering
. We can’t fail to mention that mountaineering was truly born on this mountain, with the first ascent, in 1786, by the Frenchmen Balmat and Paccard.
"The inclusion of mountaineering – explained the mayor of Courmayeur – would make it possible to put the spotlight, at the international, national and local level, on the profound interdependence between cultural heritage and natural heritage, one of the primary engines behind the pact for the safeguarding of the immaterial cultural heritage of UNESCO."
At the highest point in Italy, our daily actions can’t help but be responsible, paying close attention to the entire service distribution chain.
