Skiers of the world, know its 20km (12-mile) Vallée Blanche run, one of the most rugged, and the longest, in Europe. With exceptional equipment -- gondolas, cable cars, and chairlifts -- Chamonix is among Europe's major sports resorts, attracting an international crowd with lots of English and Swedish skiers. Thrill seekers also flock here for mountain climbing and hang gliding. A charming old-fashioned mountain town, Chamonix has a breathtaking backdrop, Mont Blanc, western Europe's highest mountain at 4,734m.
In 1741 two English men, Windham and Pococke, discovered the 'Chamouny' valley and its glaciers. Their expedition was met by a rural population of mountain farmers. This community lived off animal husbandry and a sparse harvest of oats and rye.
Windham and Pococke explored the valley and visited the Mer de Glace (Sea of Ice). The stories of their exploits, published in literary journals throughout Europe, started a craze to find out more about Chamonix.. Since then, tourism to this enchanting village, has never stopped.
