Hint

Intro

From Rochers de Naye with its marmots, rock restaurant and panorama of hundreds of crags and summits, the route leads along a steep ridge and sandstone cliff trail, later down over Mediterranean hills to Montreux.

Gorges du Chauderon, Montreux

Description

For the first quarter of the descent, some part of Lake Geneva is always in view, and later on you can see the entire body of water in all its splendour. It is worth starting out early to beat the crowds. The trail then snakes downhill, along huge rocks and through little patches of forest. A wide gravel path goes gently down through the forest, and after about an hour, half the stage has been completed on reaching Haut-de-Caux.

The mountain railway stops at the middle station, transporting lots of passengers up to the peak of Rochers de Naye from Montreux. The descent from Haut-de-Caux to Montreux takes a further two hours or so, passing through landscapes that seem almost Mediterranean to get to Glion. Finally, you enter Montreux by road and return to civilisation for the first time in days. The southern flair of Montreux cannot be denied. Ship horn blasts and screaming seagulls fill the air, while ice cream stands, restaurants and boutiques adorn the promenade. “What a contrast”, hikers will think as they lick their glace à la pistache.

 

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
