Panorama over the Glacier d’Argentiere basin: Aiguilles du Chardonnet,
d’Argentiere, Mont Dolent, les Courtes, les Droites and la Verte. Impressive ice fall.

Start from the top of the cablecar station of Plan Joran and take the path leading to Lognan and then take the EDF track which leads to the entrance to the sub-glacial water inlet reservoirs above the Chalet-Refuge de Lognan. From there, in order to reach the viewpoint, it is better to continue along the ski slope or you can take the path along the top of the moraine, which has better views but is more difficult.
