In order to get an other overview of the Mont Blanc and Aiguille du midi, we took the cable car from Argentière (1252m) to the Lognan plateau (1972m) then the Aiguille des Grands Montets (3233m). From here you can see a spectacular panoramic view of the Drus, Aiguille Verte, Aiguilles de Chamonix and Argentière glacier.
