Begin the loop around Mont Pélerin at the mountain station of the cable-car Vevey - Mont Pélerin. But before starting, it is worth admiring the views from this promontory: the steep vineyards of the Lavaux fall off into glittering Lake Geneva, which sparkles all the more against the impressive backdrop of the Savoy Alps. Start hiking towards Mont-Cheseaux, crossing forests and meadows. Here is the switching point: continue along the other side of the mountain. The last part of the hike follows the Route de Praz Valey, which eventually winds back up at the mountain station. Whoever still has the energy may want to visit the actual mountain peak that is nearby.
