Mons Klint or the Cliffs of Mon is an impressive landmark, more than a hundred-metre-tall chalk cliffs along the eastern coast of the not very large Danish
island of Mon. The area of the cliffs is the protected landscape area. The white chalk cliffs stretch above the sea level. They are several hundred years old. In the ancient times they were formed by the sea and wind. The highest parts reach 140 metres. The Mons Klint is very popular with tourists. Every year this area is visited by more than 100 thousand tourists, mainly from Europe
. There are several tourist trails in this region, and they take visitors to best lookout points in the cliff area. The locality of Mons Klint is known for cycling trails, too. In 2007, not far from the cliffs, a new geological centre (GeoCenter) was founded, tracing the geological history of Denmark and the formation of the chalk cliffs. There is a campsite near the entrance to the Mons Klint National Park.
