Chamonix from the Aiguille du Midi

Photo 006 - France

The view down to Chamonix from the highest point that visitors to the summit of Aiguille du Midi can reach. The difference in altitude is 2806 metres (9290 feet). The cablecar that takes you to the summit is one of the most spectacular in the world with the second section to the summit an unsupported single span gaining 1500 metres.
