  • Discover the glacier from the hiking trail, climb into the woods, to discover a place steeped in history... A first stop at the small restaurant bar... Some remains of the two aircraft that crashed and the bob from the movie "Malabar Princess". Wonderful place to admire this majestic glacier.

  • To do absolutely hiker or not. You can come in basketball and stop at the restaurant right next to the chairlift and you will already see the glacier. After, it will depend on your shape ... 1h30 until the pyramid schalet (pee before because the only toilet is HORRIBLE) or 4 hours until the junction and there it is ... sublime! but be careful in all cases, remember that there is the descent after (1 hour of the pyramids and 3 hours of the junction)

  • Not worth the money. It’s a tourist trap. And the waiter (girl) at the cafe was RUDE. Don’t recommend it.
  • Just Amazing !
