In September 2023, surveyors from the Haute-Savoie department reported that the tallest mountain in Western Europe had been measured at 4,805.59 meters, which was 2.22 meters less than its 2021 measurement.

Since 2001, researchers have been regularly assessing this peak every two years as part of their efforts to understand the effects of climate change on the Alps. 

The Roof of Europe

Mont Blanc is commonly referred to as “the roof of Europe,” as it attracts an annual influx of approximately 20,000 to 30,000 climbers.

The mountain reached its maximum recorded elevation of 4,810.90 meters (15,783 feet and 79 inches) in the year 2007.
