Lac Blanc Reviews & Ratings

  • Absolutely stunning. I gave a detailed review of our trek up in a review of one of the other lakes up there, chemayul but just a warning, it is actually quite a hard trek and when you hear there are ladders there, think a ladder bolted to a cliff face about 20 metres long across a sheer drop, see pics. Cafe at the top was closed when i went for off season.

  • Wonderful sight... one of the most beautiful places in Europe.

  • Nice trek, even for kids, take the entire day to enjoy, specially with snow ;)

  • Amazing view. For us, it is the most beautiful place in Chamonix. I suggest coming here from Index (some snow in summer), leaving here to Flégère.

  • After climbing around 600 m from flégère you reach lac blanc, a great lake located at top of the mountain with snow everywhere. Amazing
