After taking this cable car you can walk back to Planpraz. Stunning views but don't take any notice of the guide time in the guide books. 2 1/2 hours, not 1 1/2 as shown.

There isn't much to a cable car, it is a big metal box hanging down from a thick wire and people stand in it to be taken up or down a mountain. In that basic aim the Flegere is successful and it served my purpose of getting to one of my walking routes. However as far as metal boxes go this one is too small and too slow to serve a demanding bunch of skiers. It is old and shabby. The Chamonix company that runs all the hardwear and infrastructure needs to invest and quickly

I used this cable car in August 2013. Not very modern but it does the job. I thought 25 euros for a return on this cable car and the l'index chair lift was pretty reasonable. Absolutely stunning views across the valley towards Mer de Glace and Mt Blanc. The return hike from Flegere to Lacs des Cheserys is beautiful. Make sure you know what time the last return lift of the day is!

They don't open till 9am so no point in doing the 8.30 start. Good service not much waiting around. Pass needs to be on left side as normal

Arrived after long wait for a bus in the centre of own. Met with a HUGE queue but in fairness staff were very informative and explained there was at least an hour delay.
