1912m

The limestone scree created by endless storms and freezing temperatures gives Mont Ventoux a lunar-like aspect. Systematically stripped of trees from the 12th century onwards to supply timber for the navel port of Toulon, the mountain is truly: “bald.”
The summit is now littered with various buildings and human detritus that attempt to restrict what is a spectacular view.
