Opened in 1909, the Mont Blanc tramway is one of the oldest ‘mechanical lifts’ in the valley and the highest rack and pinion train in France.

The Mont Blanc tramway weaves its way up to Bellevue, from where there is a unique and highly impressive view of the Aiguilles de Chamonix and the Dômes de Miage. Starting from Le Fayet, it ascends from 580m to 1800m.

In winter, the Mont Blanc tramway stops at the Bellevue platform to give skiiers direct access to the Les Houches slopes. Cross country skiiers can join the higher slopes of Prarion. Snowshoe fans can also find routes suitable for them between Col de Voza and Bellevue.
