What a beautiful and rewarding hike! It was more difficult than expected, especially with 2 young children, but the endless views of the surrounding mountains are worth it and the hike is much fun. The lake itself was very nice but a little underwhelming, extremely...More

We had been told this is an "easy, family hike." Not quite: more than an hour-and-a-half up-and-down scramble over boulders and around rocks. We're in decent enough shape, but especially with the altitude, it was still difficult, and we were worried we would slip on...More

Wish they would clear the paths of rocks, it would make walking easier, especially for those with bad knees.

Took the cablecars to Flegere then onto Index. Walked in reasonable peace and quiet to Lac Blanc ... took us 2.5hrs not 1.5hrs but we are useless hikers. The path was rather rocky and narrow in places. Reached Lac Blanc ... the tarns in the...More

We hiked from the Index cable way to Lac Blanc and then down to Le Flegere. The Lac Blanc hut is cosy.

Having seen the lake in Hakuba Japan, Stellisee.... this is just ordinary I suppose. It's tiny, crawling with tourists and hardly worth the hike up - except if you hiked from l'index. That walk was spectacular....

I didn't see any dogs on the hike and would not attempt it. Some edges are too steep. It would definite be a challenge in my opinion! 🐶🙃

It took us 4.5 hours altogether from when we got on the cable car at flegere to when we returned to Chamonix car park. 3.5 hours were walking between flegere and and Lac Blanc and back.
