Aiguille du Midi

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Alan Ingram on August 16, 2001

The Aiguille du Midi cable car is one of the highest in the world - a white knuckle ride as you rapidly ascend from the valley floor.

The observation platform on the top of the rocky spire provides a spectacular panoramic view over the Chamonix Valley and the surrounding peaks of the French Alps ranging from the dominant massif of Mont Blanc, its satellite Mont Blanc de Tacul, the Aiguille du Geant and the serrated spires of the other Chamonix Aiguilles looming above the dazzling white, crevassed slopes of the Mer de Glace.

An outstanding alpine landscape - not to be missed.
