Alps, Large Snowy Mountains on European Continent - Alps, a range of large snowy mountains in charming Europe, stretching from Austria and Slovenia to east, through Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Germany, to France to west. 

The highest mountain in Alps is named Mont Blanc with an altitude of 4,808 meters on Franco-Italian border.

Because of its natural beauty many tourists, especially adventurers, climbers, skiers to those who are just curious to see Alps visiting mountains that pass through a number of countries in European Continent. 

To enjoy the beauty of Alps, tourists can also visit several villages and resorts in countries that are crossed by mountain range.

As quoted Wikipedia, geographically the Alps are divided into Western Alps and Eastern Alps, stretching between Lake Constance and Lake Como through Rhine, Liro and Mera Rivers. 

The Western Alps are taller but shorter and winding, located in Italy, France and Switzerland. Meanwhile, the Eastern Alps have a series of wide and elongated mountains, located in Austria, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Slovenia and Switzerland.

Geographical division is different from the geological angle. Geologically, these mountains are not divided into eastern and western parts. 

In general, geologists divide the Alps into three geological regions, namely the Helveticum, Penninicum and Austro-Alps.

From regional side, Helveticum is in north, Penninicum and the Austro-Alps in the middle. Meanwhile, Southern Alps are in southern part and part of Dinari Alps which stretches to Balkan Peninsula. 

Jurassic mountains from a geological point of view belong to Alps but not from a geographic point of view. (as)
