Presentation

BE CAREFUL! The Lognan cable car will closed for all summer 2022! Access via the Plan Joran cable car.

Panorama on the Argentiere glacier: Aiguilles du Chardonnet, d'Argentiere, Mont-Dolent, les Courtes, les Droites and la Verte. Impressive waterfall of seracs.

From the arrival of the Plan Joran gondola station, descend in the direction of Lognan then take the EDF trail that leads to the entrance of the sub-glacial water intake galleries above the Refuge-Chalet de Lognan. From there, continue preferably by the trail or by the path of the Moraine ridge, more panoramic, but also more uneven to reach the Point de Vue.
