Set in the heart of the Aiguilles Rouges, this beautiful lake, which is often snowcovered, is a wonderful place from which to admire the marvellous views of the Chamonix Aiguilles, les Drus and the Verte.
From the Top of Index Chairlift :
From the gondola lift station, take the path on the right which leads down to the
Lac du Fouet. The path ends up at the bottom of the Combe des Crochues. Going across the hillside brings you to the rocky spur, boundary of the Reserve Naturelle des Aiguilles Rouges, where you will find the Lac Blanc. The path now climbs up across the hillside and once level with a large cairn, you will find the footpath coming from la Flegere which takes you to the refuge and the lake.
From la Flégère mid station :
Starting at the tramway station, go down the combe of la Chavanne. Near the old stables, follow the ski piste on the left which winds its way up the hill and passes close to an old chalet and the Lac de la Flegere (2 027 m). Take the path under the Tete Aubuy, which follows a ridge (small lake) and joins the footpath coming up from Argentiere. The path now gradually becomes flatter, bringing you out at the Lac Blanc.
