A train will take you to the glacier and from there it is all on foot to the man made ice caves to see the carvings. If you are a bit unsteady walking, then... More

This was my best skiing experience ever. We had a guide for a day, went up to Aiguille de Midi and it was 2 meter new fresh snow in the beginning of April. It took us about 5 hours to go down the whole way to Chamonix. But it was a magnificent day

Beautiful valley with amazing views, shame that the glacier it melting... It was worth hiking from the middle part of Aiguille du Midi plus the views on the way were stunning as well.

So much to see here. The little gondola cable car takes you to the ice cave, but as the glacier is melting s quickly there is a walk from this to the cave via many steps - but it is worth it.

wonderful views but sad to see how far the glacier has retreated. Almost a 1/10th of what it used to be

...that the level of the glacier is going down every year. It was worth the walk down the 400-odd stairs to make us understand how quickly the ice is melting
