Having seen the lake in Hakuba Japan, Stellisee.... this is just ordinary I suppose. It's tiny, crawling with tourists and hardly worth the hike up - except if you hiked from l'index. That walk was spectacular....

A bit of a hike to Lac Blanc, but the panoramic views of glaciers and Mont Blanc mountain range on the way are amazing.

We walked from the l´Index cable car station down and it was an amazing and not too much demanding walk. We went to the La Flegere cable car station on our way back. Also not too much exhousting. The lake is beautiful, deep green-blue color.

I started the hike from the top of L'Index chairlift and ended at La Flegere. The views were amazing! Definitely recommend this hike. Go early if you can to avoid crowds. I enjoyed this hike better than the Grand Balcon Nord hike.

I didn't see any dogs on the hike and would not attempt it. Some edges are too steep. It would definite be a challenge in my opinion! 🐶🙃

It took us 4.5 hours altogether from when we got on the cable car at flegere to when we returned to Chamonix car park. 3.5 hours were walking between flegere and and Lac Blanc and back.
