Owner description: From Chamonix (1035m), fl y 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.

Reviewed 22 June 2014

Stepping into the void was awesome! The view from the top was amazing. Even the halfway point was a pleasant walk and climb too.

“Unbelievable”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

The view is unreal, your eyes just can't take it all in! Go early or just after lunch to minimise the waiting.

“Awesome experience”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

10 out of 10 for a fabulous experience. Try to head up early and miss the queues and crowds. We purchased the tickets as soon as the gates opened and managed to not have to contend with any of the tour groups. Whilst extremely apprehensive about the height it was truly worth every heart beat.

“Technology at its best”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

The large cable cars with such a huge load traversing up and down the mountain in good speed. Safety features are quite good.

“Great view!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Wonderful view in any direction, definitely worth visiting. However, be prepared for some weird feelings from the altitude and lower oxygen concentration.
