Hiking in Chamonix

We have never hiked in chamonix before but want to try the walk from planpraz to le flegere this thursday. Not sure if it is a good choice for beginners, and whether there are other things we should note when hiking in chamonix.

It's not difficult, I think it says 3 or 4 hours on the sign. It took about half that when I did it a few years ago when the lift down had closed.

Re: Hiking in Chamonix

Walk is quite straightforward. Depending on your logistics check the times of the bus or train for your return trip as they are very patchy especially around lunchtime and/or out of season.

If you want to do yourself a favor take lunch at La Remise which is excellent, in season you need to book to be safe.

Just remember that Chamonix is subject to mountain weather, that is to say the forecast is broadly useless and weather can change suddenly so take a good waterproof coat and decent shoes.
