From Chamonix, you can take the gondola lift to Plan Praz at 2000m, then the cable car to Le Brévent at 2,525m. Discover the south slope and its great panoramic view of Mont Blanc.

In summer, Planpraz is the departure point for great excursions including hikes to Lake Cornu and on Grand Balcon Sud. It also has a fine take-off area for paragliding.

In summer, from the top of Le Brévent, a footpath goes to Aiguillette des Houches via the Bel-Lachat mountain hut.
Enjoy a moment of peace and contemplation on the fine sunny terraces.

The Plaques du Brévent, facing Mont Blanc, form a pleasant, quiet climbing spot, just 5 minutes walk from the top of the cable car line.
