This lift is excellent for accessing the mountains and being able to wander around at the top with great views.

An icredable experience. The cable car takes you up to 12,602 feet for a spectacular view of the valley and across the Alps to Italy. If the weather is right, this is something you will not want to miss. Be sure and go out for a photo op on the glass enclosed case that makes you feel like you are... More

We took the Brevent cable car to enable us to do a trek to Belle le chat and on to the Aguilette des houches. The views across the valley are simply stunning, We were fortunate to witness one of the base jumpers taking off from Brevent.

We decided to visit Le Brevent as we wanted amazing views of Mont Blanc and our two year old was too young for Aiguille du Midi. We certainly feel we made a good choice. I haven’t been on ADM, but we felt the view over the valley to Mont Blanc was just stunning. We struggled a bit to find the... More

Wonderful place to watch the parachutes as they descend. Also a start for high level walks. The views across the valley towards Mont Blanc are spectacular.

The trip up the Brevent is much easier than the Midi on the opposite side, quieter and quicker. The view of Mont Blanc are amazing. If early watch for the base jumpers--very scary. Stop half way down to walk around and see the views into the valley.

Stupendous views from Le Brevent of Mont Blanc on the other side of the valley/village of Chamonix. Wonderful hike from La Flegere to Le Brevent.

Like a do its we decided to hike from the bottom to lac blanc with a 4.5 month baby strapped to my chest. Once we hit that gondola, there was no wait. My only criticism is that we weren't teleported to the bottom cause we found it difficult to stay standing during the 4 minute ride. Would definitely do again.
