Mountains forming the NW extremity of Alexander Island, extending 20 mi in an E-W direction between Cape Vostok and Russian Gap. First seen in 1821 by a Russian expedition under Bellingshausen and resighted by the BelgAE, 1897-99. They were roughly charted by the FrAE, 1908-10, under Charcot, who named them for Le Havre, French port from which the Pourquol Pas? sailed in 1908. The mountains were mapped in detail from air photos taken by the RARE, 1947-48, by Searle of the FIDS in 1960.
