Bivouac des Periades in Chamonix Mont Blanc

The Périades bivouac has collapsed

As the mountain continues to crumble, it was the Périades bivouac's turn to fall.

The bivouac, which was built in 1925 and renovated in 1966, could accommodate three people on mattresses.

Unfortunately, on Thursday the 1st of August 2019, a section of the bivouac collapsed, which destabilized the platform on which it rested.

The Périades bivouac was located at the impressive altitude of 3421 m (11223 ft).
