[edit] Geographic information

The Graian Alps (French: Alpes Grées, Italian: Alpi Graie) are a mountain range in the south-western part of the European Alps.

The Isère, Arly, Arve valleys and the Col des Montets separate them from the Savoy Prealps; the Col Ferret and the Dora Baltea valley separate them from the Pennine Alps; the Dora Ripariavalley and the Col du Mont Cenis separates them from the Cottian Alps; the Arc valley separates them from the Dauphiné Alps.

The Graian Alps are located in France (Rhône-Alpes), Italy (Piedmont and the Aosta Valley), and Switzerland (western Valais). Their French side of the Graian Alps is drained by the river Isère (Tarentaise valley) and its tributary Arc (Maurienne valley), and by the Arve. The Italian side is drained by the rivers Dora Baltea, Orco and Stura di Lanzo, tributaries of the Po.

The Graian Alps are subdivided into several subgroups:
