Rochers-de-Naye: mountain with a view

Two contrasting worlds - at the start and finish of a fascinating rail trip from lively, sophisticated Montreux to the austere summit of Rochers-de-Naye. Starting at the Station de Jaman and crossing to the Col de Bonaudon, this mountain hike then continues on to the Grottes de Naye. And to the mountain station on the Rochers de Naye. Stunning views of Montreux and Lavaux.

Opposites are fascinating. And no two worlds could contrast more than those at the beginning and the end of the thrilling train ride from lively, sophisticated Montreux to the austere summit of Rochers-de-Naye.

Spectacular hiking route to the Binn Valley

Where the vast Obergoms region turns into a narrow gorge leading to the Untergoms, the Binn Valley opens up.

Where the vast Obergoms region turns into a narrow gorge leading to the Untergoms, the Binn Valley opens up. It is popular with amateur geologists. It's not only the nearly intact Walser villages with their dark wooden houses, but also the spectacular backdrops between Grengiols and Fäld, as well as the rich vegetation and the natural mineral deposits (one of Europe's largest finds of this kind), that make this hike a superb experience of nature.
