Mont Lachat

Summit

Contributors:

8

Our Rating

Very Good

Mont Lachat is located high above Les Houches on the western end of the Chamonix Valley. Its location is such that it provides some of the best views across the entire valley and deep into the valley with good views of the mountain ranges on both sides of the Chamonix Valley. The views to the western side look across Mont Joly and towards Megeve.


Mont Lachat can easily be reached from the Bellevue lift in a relatively short trail. It can also be a part of a trip that includes the Tramway du Mont Blanc mountain train.
