Hiking to Planpraz from Chamonix

in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

Green and flowery plateau. Panoramic balcony facing Mont-Blanc. Departure area for free flight and paragliding.

Take the path to the left of the gondola and follow it along the parking lot, then leave the path to the left leading to the Pierre à Ruskin. Take the forest track passing under the cables of the cable car. Shortly after, turn left onto the path that crosses a fairly dense forest, but offers pleasant views of the valley. Cross the Petit Balcon Sud. We quickly reach the Plan des Chablettes where some ruins of a creamery remain. Then continue to climb following the signs for Planpraz - Altitude 2000.
