Le mont Ventoux est un sommet situé dans le département français de Vaucluse en région Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. Culminant à 1 911 mètres, il fait environ 25 kilomètres de long sur un axe est-ouest pour 15 kilomètres de large sur un axe nord-sud. Surnommé le Géant de Provence ou le mont Chauve, il est le point culminant des monts de Vaucluse et le plus haut sommet de Vaucluse. Son isolement géographique le rend visible sur de grandes distances. Il constitue la frontière linguistique entre le nord et le sud-occitan.
Avant d’être parcourue par trois routes principales, qui ont permis le développement du tourisme vert et des sports de pleine nature aussi bien en été qu’en hiver notamment avec l’organisation de grandes courses cyclistes, de bolides motorisés ou autres défis, la montagne était sillonnée de drailles tracées par les bergers à la suite de l’essor de l’élevage ovin entre le xive siècle et le milieu du xixe siècle. Ces chemins ont désormais été transformés en sentiers de randonnée, à l’instar des GR 4 et GR 9.
Sa nature essentiellement calcaire est responsable de sa vive couleur blanche et d’une intense karstification due à l’érosion par l’eau, avec la présence de nombreux pierriers dans la partie sommitale. Les précipitations sont particulièrement abondantes au printemps et à l’automne. L’eau de pluie s’infiltre dans des galeries et rejaillit au niveau de résurgences au débit variable telles la Fontaine de Vaucluse ou la source du Groseau. Le mont Ventoux est soumis à un régime méditerranéen dominant, causant parfois l’été des températures caniculaires, mais l’altitude offre une grande variété de climats, jusqu’au sommet à l’influence continentale de type montagnard, en passant par un climat tempéré à mi-pentes. En outre, le vent peut être très violent et le mistral souffle pratiquement la moitié de l’année. Cette géomorphologie et ce climat particuliers en font un site environnemental riche et fragile, constitué de nombreux étages de végétation, comme en témoigne son classement en réserve de biosphère par l’UNESCO et en site Natura 2000.
