The vast Pont de Nant Natural Reserve is situated in the heart of the Alps in the Vaud region. It is 1,260 m above sea level and backs onto the Grand Muveran mountain, while the Avancon des Plans river flows through it (the same river that runs through the town of Bex).

The "La Thomasia" Alpine garden provides an entrance to the reserve and the plants benefit from extremely favourable climatic conditions. Since its creation in 1891 by the Bex Development Society, the garden has kept adding to its collection. Over a surface of approximately 1 hectare, more than 70 artificial rocks, streams, ponds, peat bogs and a marsh have helped rare and spectacular plants thrive in this environment, which is sometimes extremely different to their natural environments.

How to get there:
By car: take the motorway and exit at Bex/St. Triphon
By public transport: take a regional train and alight at Bex, then catch the post bus to Plans sur Bex.
