    This funicular is more than 90 years old and ascends 750 meters on the steep mountain of chartreuse. It will take you from the valley to the Plateau des Petites roches. You will be amazed by the view of the valley and Belledonne mountain range. Arriving in saint Hilaire you can visit the "Laboratoire d'Icare" but also see the mechanism of the functionning funicular.
