Mercantour

Description

Péone, Mercantour

The Massif du Mercantour is the southernmost high Alpine region in France, bordering on Italy. The Italian part of the massif is called Alpi Marittimi. Highest summit is the Cime du Gélas, 3.143 m. This region is relatively remote and offers varied landscapes. With more sunshine, less snow, no glaciers, it makes a good hiking destination; the GR5 traverses the Mercantour from north to south. Maybe you encounter a wolf somewhere, if not chased by an angry shepherd!
