A leisurely way to travel up the mountain. Spectacular views winding up the mountain through chalets and trees.

The old style tram will brings you to the top and helps to save some power for trekking. The road goes through beautiful views. Fair price.

Really good atmospheric tram. Great views and good way to get to the top of Les Houches. A bit expensive when compared to other ways to get there.

Took a break from skiing and what a wonderful relaxing day. Unparalleled view. Glad we took the 1st tramway. As we were climbing, we see the valley in a cloud and the sun peaking from behind the mountain peaks. Breathtaking....

You will not believe how far it goes. It takes a bit long but surely you will appreciate all the time spent at the last stop. Recommended.

The tramway is really fantastic but you do not get the actual view of the Mont Blanc. The Aguille de Drus is a very bestiful mountain and the Mer de Glace an excuisite view but not the MB. Try the Aguille de Midi... More
