The Chasseron peak, over 1600 m high, is at the centre of this walk through the Jura of the Waadtland with its many wonderful views. However, at the starting point in La Combaz, something quite different is the centre of attention. Hordes of hungry guests come on a pilgrimage up here to the Pampa to taste the "Beignets au fromage"; a speciality that is obviously well-loved for miles around.
The Chalet-Restaurant Mont-de-Baulmes is located in canton Jura, in the Yverdon-les-Bains region, above Sainte-Croix to be more precise. On just a 5-minute walk you reach a stunning viewpoint with orientation board – and from here you have magnificent views over Lake Neuenburg as well as extensive panoramic views of the Alps as far as the Mont Blanc.
