We decided to walk from Parc du Aiguilles to Montenvers which took about 3 hours. There was nevee on the path which made the going tricky - we saw a mamut which was amazing.

Take the cable car to the Flegere and walk from there, or get a train or bus from Chamonix and walk up from the valley. You will be rewarded with fantastic scenery, beautiful walking, flowers, peace and quite and the odd Ibex thrown in.

Located on the opposite side of the valley, Aiguilles Rouges offer a fantastic view on the icy slopes of Mont Blanc. Although the cable car is quite pricy (~60€) it is also quite adventerous.

The natural reserve is called that for a reason so make sure that you take all your rubbish out with you. The reserve itself is quite large with a few cable cars servicing it. It is better to hike here as you can see a lot more than by just taking the cable car. There are a few refuges so... More

Great view from both the cable car platform and also if you take the short hike up (take your poles with you to make this climb easier). Pretty much a 360 deg panorama to Mt Blanc on one side and the Grande Motte in La Plagne on the other. At 3200m this is not the highest peak, but it is... More
