Hint

Intro

The winter trek between La Brévine and Mont Châteleu will take you, without you realising it, into France, if the snow covers the poles which mark the border. Mont Châteleu is very busy all year round, given the ease of access.

Description

To equip yourself visit the sports shop at La Brévine for advice on what equipment you will need. From there you can easily join the route which first crosses the valley in a northerly direction. From «Chobert» and its welcome slope, you will enter the forest and the border chain before you pop into France. You have the option of taking a break at L’Auberge du Vieux Châteleu and from there, the variant chosen to reach the summit is not too steep. You will manage it in less than an hour.

From this magnificent viewpoint, to the North you will see the Val de Morteau and to the South, the chain of the Alps from the Uri canton right over to the French mountains on your right. The return is by the same route.

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
