How to visit a dozen alpine vertices in one day. Chamonium lifts
Can be lifted in the mountains with different goals.
Someone, having wielded to the Karabins, alpenshtoks and ropes, specially goes to the most complex route on the sheer walls, someone armed with trekking sticks rises by hiking trails, someone enjoys mountain views from the helicopter.
This post will tell you about another way – cable car or lift. The advantage of the lift is that it will quickly raise you to one or another station, from where you can either go to walk along the plateau or go to the next station, or just see views from the sightseeing site, and then go back down to send to the next lift. If you wish, in one day you can have time to visit several vertices, and then at all at all visit the top of the upper stations of the lifts.
In the vicinity of Chamonix operates good ten cable lifts – Vallorcine, Charamillon-Les Autannes, Lognan-Grands Montets, Planpraz-Brevent, Belleuve, Prairion, Flegere-Index, Aiguille du Midi. At the bottom of the station at the bottom there is a cash desk, where you can buy a ticket. The cost for each route is individual – from 12 to 50 euros for the trip. When buying a ticket, you can choose options for Van Wei (one end) and returne (back-trip). The cost will be different, but slightly.
In the summer, there is a wonderful way to save significantly on the lifts, if you have a desire for visiting several top stations – buying a multi-liberty, or as it is called Multipass.
Maltipass makes it possible without restriction to use cable cars in Chamonix, as well as the Mont Blanc and Alpine Railway in Montutenver. The term of use is determined by the type of Maltipass
The cost of one-day is 54 euros, two-day – 67 euros, three-day – 78 euros, weekly – 121 euros
