Description

The Aiguillette des Posettes in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

We will meet each other at the restaurant Le Passon at the top of Le Tour village (check the tab “Meeting Point) where we will take the Charamillon gondola lift (14.30€/adult 12.20€/ -15 yo). We will follow the dirt track to the restaurant Les Alpages offering tasty traditional dishes. After a very nice lunch, we will slowly go up to the Aiguillette des Posettes (2201m) to enjoy a 360° view and finish our digestion. The final part will take you in a colorful flora down to the Montroc train station by hiking on the crest and then in the forest. The bus n°2 or 12 will take us back to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc.
