Owner description: ENJOY THE MOUNTAINS ! With its southern exposure, overlooking the Mont-Blanc Range, the Brévent is the ideal departure point for classic hikings and easy rambles to various mountain lakes (Lac du Brévent, Lac Cornu…)

A very smooth ride to a beautiful viewing area. you can then hike up to Brevent itself and get a spectacular view of Mont Blanc and the Aguille du Midi and get some wonderful photographs and a good understanding of the geography of the area. It's hard to appreciate the geography stuck down in the valleys.

The cable car station is near the central area of Chamonix. The cable car went along mountain in opposite side of Mont Blanc. From the terminal of the cable car, we could see the beautiful landscape. There were chairs along the cliff. It was fun to sit down and take photo.

This "attraction" didn't seem to be rated very highly, but we went anyway because the weather was dicey but because we only had two full days we needed to see every bit that we could. We took the cable car to the first level and found ourselves in clouds/fog. We took the tram cable car to Le Brevent and arrives as the weather was clearing and found a spectacular view! Looking one way at the French Alps and Mont Blanc and looking the other way to a beautiful valley and mountains without snow as far as the eye could see. Chamonix from the other side of the valley with Mont Blanc as a backdrop. What is not to like? We actually dined at the little restaurant which served lots of local specialties. Well worth the trip!

This is a two stage cable car the first by Gondola the second by cable car to what we think are some of the best views in the Alps. At the end of the Gondola stage you have sensational views of The Mont-Blanc Massive ,and amazing views of the hang-gliders taking off . The pastures are full of alpine wild flowers, it truly is a photographers dream location ,plus many trails for walking.From the summit at Brevent you have superb 360 vista's of the french alps ,we visited twice during our stay in Chamonix on our multi-day flexi pass so we saved a lot of money .If you are in this area do not miss this sensational attraction. take a packed lunch and enjoy.

Two cable cars take you to the top from where hang gliders jump - world championships are held here. Fantastic panoramic views of Mont Blanc and the Alps.
