Breathtaking, literally and figuratively. The views of the Rhone Alps are spectacular. I didn't go on the 3rd gondola that takes you across the glacier and the Italian border, but the views from the second viewing platform are well worth the price of the ticket. Take it slow when you get up there since the thin air makes even the smallest tasks more challenging; especially walking up stairs. Take frequent breathing breaks to keep from getting too dizzy. This can be an exciting excursion for anyone, from the seasoned mountaineer, to the first time tourist. Weather can be tricky, but even if it looks cloudy, go to the second level to see what it's like to be above the clouds. They will shut the cable car down if the weather is truly unsafe, so go for it!

Breathtaking Wiev.
But don't stay to long on the top, you may get a little dissy getting from 1000 m to 3800 m in less than ½ hour.

First to Review

A cable car will take you up to 3.800 where you will have the perfect view of the Montblanc. Once there you can take another cable car to go over a glacier and end up in Italy. 4-5 trip of amazing views. Just go if perfect weather.
Nice cities in the area (1-3 hours away):
- Lyon
- Annecy
- Geneva and the Lake Leman (where I live and if you happen to cross the border)
