Hint

Intro

Do you fancy an energetic walk with a unique view? This route takes you through forests and clearings to the Cousimbert. The view from the Cousimbert alone is worth the walk.

Description

The route starts from the car park in Le Brand. Once you are standing in front of the main ski lift building, turn left and walk to the end of the car park. Strap on your snowshoes and off you go!

Follow the ski run in line with the ski tow and then leave the ski area to join the path that leads to the Cousimbert. You will find yourself in the wild natural environment between forests and trees so typical of the Pre-Alps – guaranteed to recharge your batteries. Once you arrive at the Chalet du Cousimbert in Remy, you can take your time enjoying the panoramic views on the stretch linking the Cousimbert to the La Berra peak. From the Lac de la Gruyère, flanked by the summit of the Gibloux, the Swiss plateau is lined by the long chain of the Jura, with the Chasseral rising to 1,607 m, the Moléson (2,002 m) and the Vanils chain separated by the Intyamon valley in the west, Vounetse and the Dents Vertes in the foreground to the south, with the Gros Brun (2,104 m), the Kaiseregg (2,185 m) and the Stockhorn, and finally a fine view over the Bernese Alps to the east.

Head back towards La Berra for a well-deserved break at the refreshment stop of the same name. Descend via the cable car or continue on to the Gîte d’Allières and then walk back to the starting point.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
