Adventure helps to expand our minds and teaches us knowledge that books cannot explain. Always seeking the next greatest adventure, I came upon an attraction in the French alps that suspends a glass cube over the zenith of 3,842 meter high Aiguille du Midi mountain. It certainly tests your nerve. If you fear falling, this may not be the best place for you to go, but if you are courageous enough to stomach an awe-inspiring vision, you must make a trip to the “Pans dans le vide” or Step into the Void.
The view, 1000 meters down, includes the entire French Alps in addition to Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain. The glass cube structure is made up of 5 transparent sides. Each side is fabricated out of 3 layers of tempered glass fixed to metal for added support. Just opened to the public after 3 years of construction, one can take a cable car ride up to the lookout for incomparable vistas and refreshments. The cost:
Adults (16+ and older) $75.00 USD
Youth (4 -16 years) $64.10 USD
Under 4 years $37.67 USD
Family Packages (2 adults/2 kids) $226.00 USD
The attraction is a very popular destination already. If you are in the Chamonix area in France, it is worth a trip to Aiguillle du Midi mountaintop.
