On Friday, Jul 12, 2013 the MSC Summer school visited the Alps and ascended from Chamonix to a nearby mountain – Aiguille du Midi – with the height of slightly over 3800 m. This is a big advancement from the previous “MSC Summer school record” – Mount Moussala, the highest top of Balkans at 2925 m – which was conquered during the 2009 MSC Summer school.

The picture on the left gives some impressions from Aiguille du Midi. The highest top on the picture (the white round one on the right) is the Mont Blanc. In addition to enjoying the fantastic views and a walk in the mountains, numerous water samples were collected by the students. Those water samples will be analysed in the coming week and compared to the ones taken from various places in Lyon.
