Can do this hike from Flegere lift, but it's more fun to hike up from Argentiere (trail starts pretty much next to the main bus stop) as not so busy. 3 1/2 hours, with a little easy scrambing and a ladder climb towards the end,...More

Great hike from Frégèle near Chamonix. Amazing views of Mont Blanc all the way up and down. About 500 m elevation gain. The lake itself is very cold even in August but amazingly clear and beautiful

As you would expect outstanding views all the way. I was a bit misled by some reviews. I found the 'walk' challenging. Not difficult but a lot more climbing up rocks that i expected for much of the trek. Tip: make sure you give yourself...More

Best views in Chamonix in the summer - get cablecar from la Flegere and then go one directional to either Argentiere or Col des Montets - both routes are spectacular

One of the more popular and easy-access hikes and it is beautiful here. But come early, not very nice when it gets more crowded later in a sunny day.

Accessible on foot either from the Flegere lift, or walking from any number of access points. It's a big, rocky walk, at altitude, but the scenery is quite incredible. Walking down is just as hard as walking up. Worth the effort.
