After a short drive through the Mont-Blanc tunnel, we quickly reach
3462 metres and the Helbronner peak by cable-car.
The wild XXL panoramic view of the south side of Mont-Blanc looks almost Himalayan.
One can also admire the less famous South face of the Grandes Jorasses and of course Mer de Glace in its entire length.
During this easy hike, you will have plenty of time to emerge yourself in this gigantic and marvellous environment made of rock and snow.

If you feel out of breath, it is probably because of the altitude … or is it from the views ?
