Intro

Views from 700 meters above Lake Geneva following a funicular rail ride from Vevey via the Chardonne vineyards, then on foot and with the lift up the television tower.

Description

The rounded form of this range of hills above Unesco’s Lavaux World Heritage site is owing to the ice age. The Rhone Glacier completely covered the original scree deposits of the alpine folds with ice, nicely smoothing them off to the gently undulating form you view today..
