    Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Sports & Outdoors

    Hikers who look for easy or medium-difficulty routes can find a good choice of paths, either starting from the valley or from the cable car stations at mid-height on the mountains, such as the Lognan (altitude 1972 mwtres), Flégère (m. 1877), Planpraz (2000) or Plan de l’Aiguille (2317).
