The tiny village of Chamonix lies in the narrow valley, one side of which is dominated by Mont-Blanc. The other side is less spectacular by itself, but offers much better hiking and superb views of Mont-Blanc and the various Aiguille peaks. We spent several hours hiking around Brevent, the peak served by the leftmost of the lifts in the valley.
