October 8, 2019 was a perfect day in Chamonix--the weather, the massif, the Aiguille du Midi. We were awed by all we saw. We were inspired by snpw and ice and blue skies and winds and the occasional streaming clouds. We wish for you a...More
This is a must on a trip to Chamonix. The cost is worth the trip. The top of The mountains has an awesome view. We were lucky that the queue wasn’t long that day. You can spend about 2-3 hours on the top.
Been to Chamonix many times but first time visiting the Aiguille du Midi. It is an absolutely fantastic view of all there is to see around Chamonix. Great view of Mt Blanc. When arriving at the top it was very busy and a 45 minute...More
While not cheap, I felt this experience was totally worth the 63 euros. The line to buy tickets was a little long so would recommend doing that before but the lines for the cable cars went quickly. The views from each level were more stunning...More

It is indeed possible when you go up to the top of the Aiguille du Midi to get altitude sickness (the first symptoms are: slight headaches and nausea). We remind that access to the Aiguille du Midi is forbidden for children under 3 years old and is not recommended for children under 5 years old and people suffering from heart or respiratory difficulties.
On low and medium attendance days, the visiting time at the top is not imposed. The cable car is the only way to access the Aiguille du Midi, subject to weather conditions or potential damage. We can not guarantee a precise schedule to go back to Chamonix and It must be taken into account if you have a obligation following your visit (plane, train ...).
We stay at your disposal for any further information.
