Mont Blanc Tramway

The Tramway du Mont Blanc is one of France’s last mountain rack-rail trains and the highest railway in the Haute-Savoie department of France. This cog railway winds its way up from Le Fayet and Saint-Gervais, between meadows, pastures and small mountain lakes, via Les Houches to the Nid d’Aigle (The Eagle’s Nest) at 2,372m.  A summer ‘must-do’!
