A mountaineer recently discovered a box of hidden treasure on the Glacier des Bossons, He stumbled across the box which contained rubies, emerlands and sapphires while crossing over the Glacier.
The climber decided to hand the jewels over to local authorities after he noticed the jewels were contained in bags with ‘Made in India’ printed on them.
Its not the first time pieces of aircraft have been found on the Glacier des Bossons, in-fact, some local residents frequently find pieces of the stricken Air India plans that crashed on Mont-BlancÂ in 1950 and 1966.
If no-one claims the jewels they could become the property of the lucky mountaineer, who would then become around â‚¬250,000 richer!
If your 2013/14 winter holiday is already booked why not get you airport transfer booked too. All too often we receive last minute requests from people who “forgot” to book this vital part of their holiday.
We understand it’s not as much fun as choosing your luxury chalet or buying your new skis online, but without the airport transfer your chalet could be difficult to get too.
AtÂ this time of year many of the airport transfer companies are getting ready for the coming winter and have lots of availability, booking now will almost certainly guarantee you availability even over the busy Xmas / New year period.
Policing of the “normal” route and Trois mont-Blanc route on Mont-Blanc will now go ahead for this coming summer climbing season 2013.
From June through to September police will be placed on two very popular climbing routes to inform and, when necessary prevent people attempting Mont Blanc.
They will mostly be present in two places: the Col du Midi and the Tete Rousse hut. They are being placed there to educate climbers and give advice for a successful summit attempt. They will look at equipment, peoples fitness, weather and other factors.
The only place where is it permited toÂ bivouac is at the TÃªte Rousse, where there is a designated camping area.
