Description

La Jonction is the ultimate trail that hikers dream of.

A tough climb to get the adrenalin pumping, sprinkled with historical significance and an epic view. La Jonction (The Junction) is one of the classics of the Mont Blanc Massif and the Chamonix Valley.

This itinerary offers a staggering view of the Aiguille du Midi, the Dôme du Gôuter as well as the Aiguilles Rouges.

La Jonction constitutes an exceptional site as it gives close view towards two glaciers from where you can observe their seracs and crevasses in an enchanting environment.

The high elevation gain represents the sole difficulty of the hike.

From the car park, take the trail going inside the forest, sign “La Jonction”.
