When the pioneers created the Diablerets route, they wanted good walkers to get to know this amazing mountain and its surroundings. Stunning view points are dotted along this walk: above Gryon, les Chaux is a breathtaking view point over Lake Geneva, Val d’Illiez, Dents du Midi and the Rhône plain and from the Tsanfleuron plateau, you will be able to take in the big chain of Valais Alps, from Mont-Blanc to Mont Rose. Completing this circuit also brings you through three Swiss cantons: Berne, Vaud and Valais.
Duration of hike: 4-5 days
