Owner description: Mountainous massif of the northern Alps, opposite the Mont Blanc massif.

Cant recommend this walk highly enough. From the Index chair lift (above Flegere from Les Praz) short descent on ski-run, before climbing up valley to Cwm at Lac Cornu/Lac Noirs). Via Ferrata-style cables/rungs to help with slightly tricky sections (not too scary - fine for family used to Snowdonia/Lakes walks).

Views, atmosphere outstanding. Allow 2-3 hours including detour to lakes and picture taking.

The Aiguilles Rouges natural reserve is great for hikes and also for rock climbing. There are several lakes that one can hike up to. Lac Blanc is the best known because there is a nice restaurant up there. The other lakes are more "wild nature". The view is great, with the Mont Blanc Massif right in front of you.

Stunning rock climbs with access to the starting points made easier by the cable car and chair lift up to the Index! Views across the valley to the Mere de Glace and the Mont Blanc massif are fantastic. Did the Voie Gaspard route - E1, brilliant. Great walks for those not equipped for the crags.

Beautiful, wilderness of mountains. You can choose a hiking route from "medium" difficulty to "difficult with climbing elements" or just walk any route so far you feel you good and safe. There are wild marmottes, chamois, and even royal eagle can be seen above your head. Lots of wild flowering rhododendrons... Very beautiful views on Mount Blanc massif.
