From Chamonix, soar over the forest to reach the Plan de l’Aiguille (2317 m). Admire the Glacier des Bossons, the Mont-Blanc, the Aiguille Verte, the Drus and the Aiguilles de Chamonix. Then take a second cable-car which will take you up to an altitude of 3777m in just 10 minutes, above seracs and glaciers. Take the top lift and you will reach the peak at 3842m! Welcome to the heart of the high mountains!
