Chamonix and the Mont Blanc Massif is a fantastic terrain for mountaineering. In this section you can find some of the most amazing climbing routes in the world. All along these routes there are plenty of huts and refuges that will help you break up your route and get some rest.
Some of them have a "guardian" all year, others just in the summer and some of them are just a bivouac with no "guardian" at all.
The information in this section comes from the people that run the refuges and huts. All information can always change because of weather conditions or other constraints.
Reservations are necessary in most cases and must be made by phoning the hut guardian; there is no central booking office for huts.
