Lognan > Glacier d'Argentière hiking trail (viewpoint)

in Argentière
Presentation

BE CAREFUL! The Lognan cable car will closed for all summer 2021! Access via the Plan Joran cable car.

Sweeping views over the Argentiere glacier, the Aiguilles du Chardonnet, Aiguilles d’Argentiere, Mont Dolent, Les Courtes, Les Droites and La Verte. An impressive ice fall.

Start from the heights of the Plan Joran cable car station and take the path towards Lognan. Then take the EDF track that leads to the entrance to the sub-glacial water inlet tunnels above the Lognan Chalet-Refuge. To reach the viewpoint from there, continue along the ski slope. Alternatively, you can take the path along the crest of the moraine, which offers better views but which is more difficult.
