This is the Alps back home, cornering the Italian Peninsula and dominating the nations of Switzerland and Austria. The tallest, Mont Blanc, stands 15,780 feet above sea level.
In this alternate scenario, the Alps range is the European equivalent of the Himalayas, the result of a subcontinent continuously crashing into the mainland continent. The tallest peak is 18,510 feet above sea level--and still rising.
Marked in dark brown is the alternate Alps. Turkey is black because, in this alternate scenario, it doesn't physically exist.
With this alternate Alps, will the Balkan Peninsula have a monsoon climate, similar to India?
