A mountain overlooking Lake Geneva, Rochers-de-Naye straddles the range separating the lake from the valley of the Sarine. Even at 2,042 m (6,699 ft) tall, the summit is easily reachable from Montreux. You can board a train to the summit station, which climbs as high as 1,968 m (6,457 ft), and then finish the ascent on foot. Or, start from Col de Jaman and complete the two- or three-hour hike to the peak. At the top, take time to look into a fenced-off marmot habitat to catch a glimpse of the mountain creatures.

Incredible views from the top! Take the mountain railway 50mins from Montreux Gare (if you have a GA/AG card it’s free). Restaurant at the top. Worth the trip! 2 hours min. needed to enjoy it fully! Lots of viewpoints.
