An absolutely amazing experience, worth doing. If you are scared of heights, you might want to go in the centre of the cable-car and not look out the window. This was one of the scariest moments of my life looking out that window at the world disappearing into the distance. Also the noise the cable car makes when going over... More

Visited on a fantastically clear day and the views were spectacular. At the top of the cable car ride we both felt a little unwell as did several others of all ages and needed to sit down for a while to accustom ourselves to the altitude but it was worth it for an unforgettable experience.

this is an outstanding place.make sure you spend a lot of time here. get a guide and do the argentiere glacier. also there is a tiny hut serving food on the far right (skiiers right) of the mountain. don't miss it.

Highest mountain in Europe is a must to see. It is worth the ride up the cable car even if you are not skiing the route. Restaurant and view decks for photos.

Its a breathtaking view of Alps and its surrounding in the winter. We have enjoyed thoroughly the cable car ride and the snow experience at 3815m at -13 deg c. It is a must go place. Do not miss strolling in Chamonix town after cable car ride and the beautiful view of the snow capped houses on the descent in... More

The view is absolutely stunning, hard to comprehend what you are seeing. Difficult to breathe up there which is a little weird and you seem to feel dizzy due to the thin air but don't let that put you off just go.
