Mont Blanc Summit
Mont Blanc Summit OverviewAn exciting trip carefully designed to maximise the chances of a successful summit bid.
Highlights of Mont Blanc Summit
The highest mountain in Western Europe is an irresistible challenge for experienced trekkers, and this nine-day holiday from Mountain Kingdoms is specially designed to maximise the chances of reaching the summit of Mont Blanc.
Our alpine base is the tranquil, beautiful valley of Saas Grund, where we stay in a mixture of hotels and mountain huts. We begin this Mont Blanc trekking holiday with climbs to the summits of two spectacular mountains of over 4000m/13,000ft – the Weissmies and the Alphubel, or Strahlhorn. These are excellent, non-technical mountaineering objectives but also greatly assist with our acclimatisation to altitude – essential for the climb to Mont Blanc.
An alpine skills day ensures familiarity and ease with glacier travel, crevasse rescue, and use of ice-axe and crampons before we begin trekking up Mont Blanc. We spend one night at the Tete Rousse hut and one night at the Gouter hut, which as a safeguard against poor weather, will provide us with two opportunities to undertake the final trek to Mont Blanc’s summit, for an unforgettable alpine sunrise.
