Chamonix’s number 1 tourist attraction is the Aiguille du Midi
Chamonix’s number 1 tourist attraction is the Aiguille du Midi, which you can visit on a two-stage cable car. You’ll be whisked up to 3842 metres above sea level, where you can get panoramic views of Mont Blanc from the terraces and look back on the Chamonix Valley, way down below.From here you can watch skiers and mountaineers descending the arête onto the infamous Valley Blanche or heading up to climb to the summit of Mont Blanc. At the mid-way change over for the cable cars, you can go paragliding (more details on p.55).At the Aiguille du Midi is a thrilling experience “Step into the Void” where you can step into a glass box, suspended 1000 metres above a drop over the rock faces below. You can access this via the summit elevatorat the very top of the Midi for some truly unforgettable views (if you’re brave enough!).
