Verticalp Emosson

Spectacular peak experience

In the heart of Espace Mont-Blanc, midway between Chamonix (F) and Martigny (CH), VerticAlp Emosson, formerly Parc d'attractions du Châtelard, offers you a spectacular and unforgettable experience. Three unique rail systems take you to the amazing natural site of Emosson at an altitude of 1,965 m, facing the magnificent panorama of the legendary Mont-Blanc.

It offers three unusual rail-based attractions:
  • One of the steepest 2-cabin funicular in the world (87% gradient);
  • A decauville narrow gauge railway whose little train provides a "balcony on wheels" for enjoying the view of the Mont Blanc range;
  • A mini-funicular that connects the "Pied du barrage" terminus of the little train with the Lac d'Emosson railway station, which stands 30 metres above the crown of the Emosson dam.


Every day from June 6 to October 25, 2020 from 9am to 5pm.
