A high mountain tourist site, it is accessible to all types of public throughout the year. The departure of the cable car is in La Mongie at 1800 metres above sea level and allows you to reach the summit at 2877 metres in 15 minutes. Located on the Pic de Midi starry sky reserve, at night you can contemplate a sky preserved from light pollution and have stars in your eyes.
