Gourmet path in the Montreux-Vevey region

Why not savour a taste of the culinary specialities of the Montreux-Vevey region as well as the sights? On commencing the excursion in Vevey, climb aboard the train direction Pléiades and enjoy a cheese slice as a first if you like. The hike to follow leads along the Pleiades ridge to the Lac-des Joncs lake, where you can now appease physical effort with small cold meats and cheese platter. Last leg of this tasteful hike is the downhill descent to Les Paccots, where a delicious meringue with whipped cream further sweetens a day well spent.
