Mont Blanc is breathtaking from any viewing level, but more so the higher you ascend up the nearby mountain. A must see when in the French Alps.

It is a beautiful site to look up from the Chamonix valley and see the white-capped peak. But I would say the mountain range nearby is not any more beautiful than the Sierra-Nevada mountains (Tahoe or Yosemite) or Mount Fuji in Japan.

From Chamonix, on a sunny day, you can see the top. The glaciers coming down from Mont Blanc are amazing. Best seen from the Aiguille De M or the hut nr Les Bossons overlooking the glacier end.

The ride alone to the top of duMidi is about 25 minutes. So up and down alone takes one hour. I'd allow 3 hours minimum to really enjoy it. There are several viewing platforms at the top, all of which have spectacular views... More
