Glass Alpine Installation

Atop the Aiguille du Midi mountain peak, 3,396 feet above a valley in the French Alps, rests the new Chamonix Skywalk. This glass box allows visitors to have an unprecedented view—across, above and even below—of the extreme surroundings. The experience is guaranteed to be vertigo-inducing, and is appropriately titled “Step into the Void.” With Mont Blanc being in the line of site, the view is pretty extraordinary.
