General Information About Le Chatelard / Martigny

"The solely 60 centimeter-wide small train to follow appears a toy in comparison. And the so-called Minifunic railway to the crowning dam is a mix between funicular rail and a lift.

Up here views over Trient and the Mont-Blanc region are truly impressive - and the return journey on the same line to Le Chatelard, or by bus from Lac d'Emosson to Finhaut offers more scenic enjoyment."

    • Parc d'Attraction du Chatelard"railways, views of the Mont-Blanc massif, 250 million-year-old dinosaur tracks (2.5 hour hike).
