Alpine pastures on the Montagne de Blaitière overlooking the Valley. Fantastic views of the Chamonix Aiguilles. From the Grépon parking lot at the foot of the Aiguille du Midi, follow the direction Pré du Rocher and reach the mountain pasture where the old chalets of Blaitière-Dessous (1708m) are located. Continue by entering the last part of the forest: the Alpage de Blaitière-Dessus appears on the background of the Aiguilles de Chamonix. After a nice mountain walk on the Mont-Blanc side, you will enter the mountain pasture. Other itineraries are possible from the Planards parking, the Grand Balcon Nord or the intermediate station of the Aiguille du Midi cable car. More information available at the Tourist Office or the High Mountain Office and in our trail guide. Warning: Trail conditions are subject to change, so please check before you leave.
