We took the cable car up, it wasn't as dear as going up Aguile Du Midi but we all packed in like sardines so the kids couldn't see which was a shame. Cable cars come every 10-15 minutes and it's a quick journey up and...More

Plenty of paths to follow. Everyone crossing your way just say hello, a rather forgotten social behaviour nowadays.

A great day in cable car and then hiking further up the mountain. Loads to see, make sure you pick a clear day

I really did not expect much if visiting in Feb, but if all weather forecasts said it was sunny then I tried. Turned out weather forecast refers to the peak which is 200m higher than the cable car station. If you could walk in the...More
