Le Lac Blanc

Lac Blanc

Get ready for a hike over the Mont-Blanc Massif

Lac Blanc requires some effort but you will be rewarded with sweeping views of the entire Mont-Blanc Massif and the Aiguilles Rouges.

If you are with children or you are a novice mountain walker, opt to start from Les Praz de Chamonix-Mont-Blanc via the La Flégère cable car. It will then take you 2 hours on foot to reach Lac Blanc.

If you are more athletic and used to mountain trekking, Lac Blanc can also be reached from the Col des Montets or Tré-le-Champ.

If you choose one of these routes, be careful: they are technical and can be quite hair-raising, so are not suitable for everyone !

Whichever path you choose, you are sure to enjoy a wonderful trek through a landscape unlike any other on Earth!


Responsible attitude :

  • Swimming and navigation prohibited Lac Blanc and Chéserys Lakes by prefectural decree

Why protect them ?

  • Because high-altitude lakes are fragile.
  • Because sunscreens and other products are pollutants for these environments.

Le Lac Blanc et le télécabine de la Flégère

Lac Blanc is the promise of astounding panoramic views of the glaciers and the finest summits of the Mont-Blanc Massif. Early in the morning, you might spot the ibex or catch a glimpse of the marmots enjoying the stillness of dawn.

You’ve made it! Now, sit down on a rock and admire the stunning natural surroundings.

We usually just say Lac Blanc, but there are in fact two lakes – the lower lake and the upper lake.
And upstream, the Chéserys lakes also provide a wonderful viewpoint over the Massif – definitely worth a visit! 

To really enjoy your trek, make sure you are wearing appropriate footwear and take refreshments with you.
You will come home with some wonderful memories… and will be keen to do it all over again!
