Chamonix Walk of the Month | Signal Forbes

Signal Forbes a favourite walk from Chamonix

As this is one of the most spectacular walks in the Chamonix valley hence we always try to include the trek to Signal Forbes in our walking breaks.

Taking the Aiguille du Midi cable car to the midway station brings us to the start of the walk. We leave the cable car station before descending to Chalet du Plan de l’Aiguille. We are treated to wonderful views down to Chamonix from here.

You’ll see that the path is clearly marked. You traverse across the hillside before reaching a short steep section heading towards Signal Forbes. Guests are treated to spectacular views of the Mer de Glace and the Grandes Jorasses from here. This spot has been voted one of the best lunch stops on our French Alps walking holiday.

Reluctantly we now head down on a very good path to Montenvers. Guests have the option of walking down to Chamonix or taking the train back.
