  • Go here and bring a packed lunch but be prepared that there will be a lot of people here during high season.  more »
  • Beautiful serene Lac Cornu in Charmonix France is a glacial fed Alpine lake in the French Alps region of Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes. As beautiful as Lac Blanc with many Swiss peaks as a backdrop.  more »
  • Bizarre qu'il n'y ai que si peu d'avis sur ce lieu. Prendre le téléphérique depuis Chamonix pour Planpraz (2000 m). Rando de 4h assez soutenue jusqu'au lac Cornu (2276 m) en passant par une arête à 2400 m. Tellement beau avec la chaîne des Aravis à l'horizon. Quand vous redescendez c'est au tour du Mont Blanc de vous faire face. Grandiose.
