Montenvers, la mer de glace

La mer de glace (sea of ice) is France’s largest glacier measuring 7km in length and 200m in depth.
Our journey starts in Chamonix town where we took a 20 mins train ride up to Montenvers Alt 1913m. Then it’s a 2 min cable car ride down to a platform where we have to walk 420 steps down into an ice grotto. It’s not a long tour. The ice grotto is about a 50m loop. It’s quite spectacular to walk through the glacier. I thought people used to live in there but my brother just laughed at me. I failed to read the info. Lol
Back at the top, if the weather is good there are great views but it was snowing. The whole trip took us 2h 30 and it was free with our ski pass.
