Enjoy a walk to the cute chalet of Caillet on the way to the Mer de Glace.

Start from the Biollay car park, near the Montenvers train station. From the lever crossing, walk throught the car park which runs alongside the Montenvers railway line and then up the ski runs of les Planards. Once across the meadow, take the footpath in the woods on your left. This takes you up to the Station des Planards where you cross the railway line. The path winds upwards and then across to bring you to the Chalet de Caillet (1590 m), 2hours.

Others itineraries available from Les Bois or Montenvers.
