Mont Brulé (also known as Mont Brûlé or Mont Braoulé) is a mountain of the Pennine Alps, located on the Swiss-Italian border, east of the Col Collon. On its northern side it overlooks the upper Arolla Glacier.


Though in French this name means "burnt mountain", this toponym comes from Valdôtain Francoprovençal patois. According to Aostan botanist and scientist Joseph-Marie Henry,[2] the word Broillà means "made of breuils", Breuil meaning alpine marshy berm, as for Breuil in Valtournenche.
