"Montroc" Montroc by Manara

Montroc Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 3 photos

Montroc is a small village in the commune of Chamonix.
There is much snow here in winter, and a few years ago this led to a great tragedy. In February 1999 an unusually big avalanche hit the village, destroying fourteen chalets and killing twelve people.
When visiting this place on an idyllic summer day it is hard to imagine how cruel the mountains can be.
