Owner description: From Chamonix (1035m), fly over the forest to reach le Plan de l’Aiguille in 10 minutes (2317m). On your right, the Glacier des Bossons, in front of you the Mont-Blanc (4810m), on your left the Aiguille Verte, the Drus and the Aiguilles de Chamonix. Then take a second cable car which, in just 10 minutes takes you up to 3777m, over the seracs, the glacier des Pelerins and the hanging glaciers on the north face of the Aiguille du Midi. . From the top, a sightseeing panorama unique in the world. Experience a very high altitude.

Excellent views and a must do cable cars up there very overcrowded and pricey. Good refreshment facilities and very good viewing areas on all sides.

Spectacular view on the way down to Chamonix (total descent 1300 m, total ascent 200 m). The trail is well marked like all other trails in Chamonix.

the most outstanding views in the world - you have to make this trip if you visit Chamonix - there are few places where you are this close to a glacier

This was surely the one of the highlights of our holiday, although an early start on a clear day is needed, the cable car does get extremely busy, i would reccomend going straight to the top and stopping off halfway on way back down.
The views are truley fantastic all around the mountain range, But to get the views of Mont-blanc on a clear sunny day are stunning, and the trip on the Hellbronner cable car is a must do, riding over the glaciers and crevices whilst climbers and walkers are negotiating the routes are great to watch and catch on your cameras, this is definately a must do trip.
