An old two-carriage train connects the village of Chamonix in the French Alps to a hill station next to the Montenvers glacier. The thirty-minute train journey through the mountains is followed by a short cable car ride that connects the hill station to the glacier at the bottom of the glacial valley, almost. A walk on foot down some 450 steps completes the journey. For the unfit, the walk back up later on can be a struggle.
It's a mad HX world!
