Lovely old Tramway du Mont Blanc, perfect access for refuge Tête Rousse (2-3h walk) or refuge du Gouter (4-6h walk).

Summer visit: We sat there quietly on the edge of the valley and a group of Ibex boys passed by us. Beautiful flowers, great experience.

We didn't arrive in a good weather condition which made everyone's life more complicated. However, since most services are subjected to good weather, the staff should be better prepared to support coming customers with complete and not confusing information. It took us 2 hours and...More
