Aiguilles Rouges pass all the way from Passy to the swiss border. It is a very good spot to hike with all the paths marked very well. The higher you go the better the views are obviously. I managed to camp on the summit of Le Buet one night and i would definitely recommend it. There is no need to carry water as the snow melt provides plenty of run off. I made the mistake of carrying a few bottles from the refuge below but save yourself the weight.

No! Because the view of the valley as you disappear into the clouds on the cable car is still amazing. Then you're just travelling in whiteness and have no idea what's going on... so that's it's own experience - especially when a rock suddenly emerges out of nowhere 2 feet from the window....
Even in thick mist Aiguilles Rouges was somewhat dreamlike - but that was possibly the altitude sickness that just added to the dimensions of this experience. You have to go outside tho... and we did, and then came back in pretty quickly (it was snowing, freezing and wind chill stuff was going on).. The food was normal cafe-style. Nothing to write home about, but nice hot chocolate to add to the experience. I'm really glad I went. Going to Chamonix and NOT going would have been ridiculous.

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.
