Méribel refers to three neighbouring villages in the Les Allues commune of the Savoie département of France, near the town of Moûtiers (45.401° N 6.5655° E). The villages are within the Vanoise National Park.

Méribel Les Allues is a ski resort that was developed adjacent to the traditional hamlet of Morel, with its centre situated at about 1400 metres above sea level. The original skiing development was promoted by British Colonel Peter Lindsay, who spotted the potential of the valley in 1938; his family continue to have a financial stake and his grandchildren now ski in Meribel. Peter Lindsay's ashes and those of his wife are scattered on the Burgin mountain. Under his guidance the resort was developed in a "traditional" chalet style.

A more modern village, Méribel-Mottaret, has also been built near the head of the Allues valley at an altitude of 1700 metres.

Méribel Village is the much less developed traditional village located on the road to Courchevel, also located at about 1400 metres.

The ski resorts are part of the Trois Vallées ski area.

The panoramic image is beautiful in which winter is in its full swing. But my friend, roof of the world is known as Tibet. We and India have several passes where road is available over 18,000ft above the sea level. I am taking about Humalaya and Korakarams.

Indeed the point of view is intersting and the photography is interesting. Well done Mert. TFS.

Merhaba Mert abi.
Mavi gözyüzü ile birlikte harika bir görsel çıkmış ortaya, kayak yapanların giysileri de güzel bir karşıtlık sergilemiş.
Ellerinize ve gözlerinize sağlık, paylaştığınız için teşekkürler.
