Lac Bleu and the Glacier des Pelerins
A nice short walk from the Plan du
Midi cable station although you can of course if you wanted to make it
longer you can walk up from Chamonix.
Lac Bleu is a wonderful relaxing spot
underneath the Chamonix Aiguilles although we have in the past sat by
the peaceful water and heard the sound of heavy rock falls resonating
off the mountains.
A path marked in customary red spots
heads down from the Plan Du Midi across a boulder field and in about 15
minutes you reach the lake.
A slightly longer path leaves the Plan
du Midi restaurant heading away from the lake towards the Glacier des
Pelerins making it possible to have two relatively short walks with
rewarding dramati scenery and a sense of remoteness.
It is possible with the right
equipment and care to continue crossing over the first glacier on
continue to Les Glaciers. and Glacier des Bossons.
