Took the cable car to the top then walked along the mountains for a 12km hike. Stunning scenery everywhere you look. Make sure you have plenty sun lotion and water if doing a hike.

Get the multi day pass and enjoy a ride on this gondola. It’s worth it even if you just go up and have a look around and a sandwich!

Our first day in Chamonix and we thought we'd ride up to see where we'd be walking on the TMB. Stunning vista.

We took the cable cars up to the top station where there were excellent views across to Mont Blanc. The day we visited was warm and sunny so we were able to have lunch sitting in the terrace overlooking Mont Blanc

We almost didn’t go based on the price tag (which is high, even for a resort area—I believe we could have done a two for one that would have helped). However, the view at the top and the hiking opportunities it begins are totally, completely...More
