Great ride with stunning views and the Cafe at the top has spectacular viewpoint. Use multipass so you can visit every day. A must!

gondola and cable car facilities are great but real bugbear is charging extra for ticket. Paying 300€ is a decent amount to get for 2 of us for 3 days without whipping more for techy ticket

Upon reaching the Brevent peak, you will be greeted with amazing views of Mont Blanc across the way. There are hiking trails aplenty. We hiked down to Brevent Lake and back, which was amazing. At the Planpraz station, paragliding is a must-do!

If you ever dream to make this paragliding experience, this is the place! The local instructors will take you to "once in a life time" ride paragliding ride above Chamonix valley. The price is reasonable, 100 Euros. Enjoy!!!

Fabulous view across the Chamonix Valley on the way up and across the Haute Savoie when we arrived made up for the not so good snow.

Very safe and clean access to this station - good food and drinks available at both levels. Excellent outdoor seating area and other activities available at the station. Spent several hours soaking up the atmosphere, the views and the sun. Good value for money.

We have been to Chamonix in end December and it was a total disappointment as they did not invest there for at least 10 years. All the ski lifts are old as they do not slow down before picking you up. You can easily get...More

We started our TMB here, all good. Used our multipass. Excellent way to get high with almost no effort.
