Owner description: From Chamonix (1035m), fly over the forest to reach le Plan de l’Aiguille in 10 minutes (2317m). On your right, the Glacier des Bossons, in front of you the Mont-Blanc (4810m), on your left the Aiguille Verte, the Drus and the Aiguilles de Chamonix. Then take a second cable car which, in just 10 minutes takes you up to 3777m, over the seracs, the glacier des Pelerins and the hanging glaciers on the north face of the Aiguille du Midi. . From the top, a sightseeing panorama unique in the world. Experience a very high altitude.

Well organised system. Not cheap but day or multi-day passes good value for several visits (to any).

Spectacular views await at the end of an exhilerating ride on the highest cable car in the world. Peer over the highest mountains in France, Switzerland and Italy. But don't forget to rug up...its very cold in paradise.

Can't argue with all the other 5's. This was a brilliant experience and everything was very professionally run as it needed to be.

We went straight up to the top hoping to kid ourselves in to thinking it was nothing to be worried about. Have to confess to wobbly knees but the views soon took our minds off it.

Brilliant experience.

Stopped off at Plan du Midi on the way down and felt like we were walking around at sea level!

Service in the cafe was very pleasant.

I haven't tried to describe the actual experience or views as words fail me. Just do it.

We had a good weather, morning views are breathtaking. Amenities are impressive as for 3887 m. Next time plan to attack the summit.

Well worth the price of the ticket as there are many views to enjoy from the top! Get the mt blanc pass to enjoy even more. We had a gorgeous view and loved just looking out from every angle. Definite worth it if you're in Chamonix!
