Aguille du midi
Since 1955 it has been possible to take a cable car to 3.842 meters, the summit of the Aguille du Midi. From there you have one of the world’s most impressive views over the Mont Blanc, the surrounding glaciers and some extreme steep verticals. In December 2013 the ‘Step into the Void’ was opened, a glass skywalk with a view of 1.035 meters down. Last, but not least, the Aguille du Midi is also the start of the famous ski tour over the Vallée Blanche.
