Aiguille du Midi

The Aiguille du Midi is an extraordinary place – an astonishing engineering achievement that allows anyone to access the magical world of the high mountains. At 3842 metres (12,605 feet), it’s the biggest vertical ascent of any cable car in the world.

The terraces and bridges are built into the living rock with huge strength to withstand the mountain storms and hurricane speed winds, and the structures have their own beauty in the unique light of high altitude.
