This famous needle, which is one of the highest in Chamonix, has been an unmissable destination for visitors for more than 60 years.
In just 20 minutes, the Aiguille du Midi cable car will take you from the centre of Chamonix to the high mountains, reaching an altitude of 3,842 m.
Accessible, except for the ticket office windows. You will have access to the summit of the Aiguille du Midi. The passage from the first stage to the second stage can be made without any real difficulty. However, it won’t be possible for you to stop at the intermediate stage Plan de l’Aiguille if you are unaccompanied, (a lot of stairs to get to the café). Once you have reached the second level you will have access to the Rébuffat Belvédère, the summit terrace 3842m and the “step into the void” to get an adrenaline buzz.
2 free car park places in front of the cable car. Adapted toilet at the departure.
The snack bar and restaurant are not accessible to the top.
The souvenir shop located at the bottom is accessible.
