In the Alps, the concept of mountaineering was born during the romantic era in which scientists, naturalists and artists sought their source of inspiration in these mountains. Science and art gave way to challenges of sporting and technical nature. With the conquest of Mont Blanc in 1786 by the crystal seeker Jacques Balmat and Chamonix doctor Michel Gabriel Paccard, the beginning of mountaineering was installed. Almost a century later, in 1865, the first ascent to the 4478m Matterhorn was achieved by a team led by Englishman Edward Whymper, ending the so-called Golden Age of Mountaineering. Alpine activity continued in its search for new challenges, which nowadays it still without limit. The Alps are from year to year, the scene of new climbs and epic ascensions, never before made.
Currently, 14 million people live in the Alps and 120 million tourists visit each year, which gives an idea of the importance of tourism in all regions of the Alpine range.
