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!!!

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 injured if you are a beginner. Someone working there told me that they don't invest... More

Take the cable car up to the 3/4 level and then the gondola to the summit. In good weather, the views are simply amazing especially across the valley to Mont Blanc and the Aguille du Midi. There's a nice cafe at the summit and a restaurant at the 3/4 level, both with beautiful views. When at the summit, watch for... More

Rode up and down the telepherique, stopped at the top for a great 360' view, took some great photos, worth the ride, and made the walk up to Plan Praz from Chamonix worth the effort, would do it again anytime.
