  • Challenging for the poor athlete that I am, but what a great reward at the top! At each of the "stages" of this climb, I almost gave up, but the encouragement of those who descend to (and my husband) have allowed me to reach the top, and there, what view... throughout the region, its volcanoes and lakes at your feet! Back to the parking lot was less pleased: deceived by an affirmation of the guide of the Sancy "been 2017" issued by all the Tourist Offices in the region, saying "parking from May to September" we were not paid 2 euros of parking (for 5 hours) ... by the way, everything was closed, not cable car, no bar, no open trade, this has therefore strengthened us in this idea... but we were likely to find a fine of 17 EUROS on our windshield, issued by the local police. Thus, at the foot of the Sancy, or cable car, or bistro, in short, no service didn't work at the beginning of October, except the Municipal Police of the Mont Dore! The next morning I went to the Town Hall of the Mont Dore which employees said that the Mayor was absent, they returned me to the Police Office, where I tried to prove my good faith, but there, although recognizing it, he was told that "we follow the orders of the Mayor"!... and that my ticket was already passed in Clermont-Ferrand! Thank you Mayor of Mont Dore! you go, thus taxing the curists, your friendly great city!

  • Impressive ascent by cable car. Descent on foot in an hour. Very beautiful view especially at the top of the 800 steps to reach the top of the peak Sancy.

  • Beautiful views. Gondola is around 10 euros return. The line up gets big so go early. The stairs at the top are wooden and quite uneven. Not great for bad knees.
  • Very beautiful, but overcrowded
  • Beautiful view above! Lot of stony passages not pleasant to go up or down from the bottom of the cable car to the top, but other than that... it's beautiful!

  • Very beautiful view if you have the chance that the sky is clear. For walkers, it is possible to not take the cable car. Count 1 h to 1 h 30 of moderately difficult climb. For this, please follow the yellow arrows on the left side of the cable car and follow a part of the blue track.

  • Beautiful 😀 two possibilities of cable cars. The Mont Dore or Super Besse. The first plus live and rest a few steps to climb. Or a foot it is even more beautiful! With the Valley of sculptures.
