We’ve enjoyed our share of spectacular mountain scenery in Switzerland during visits to Mürren and Zermatt. These are not-to-be-missed attractions during any Alps tour. That said, our journey to the top of the Aiguille du Midi via cable car at 3,842 meters (12,604 ft) on the Mont Blanc massif left us breathless.
This vantage point allows visitors to see across the Alps in all directions. The scenery in the immediate vicinity is wild. Note, the little ants you see at the bottom of this photo? Those are brave people crossing the snow for various crazy adventures.
