What you'll do

Our hike's destination is Grammont - a peak in the Chablais Alps, directly across the lake from Montreux. Grammont is also the site of 'Taurendunum event', when in 563 AD a massive landslide caused a tsunami on Lake Geneva. The first part of the trail takes us from the small mountain village of Miex to the milky-blue waters of lake of Taney. On its shores there is an alpine inn, which is a perfect stop for a snack or a drink. The toughest part comes next. For about 2 hours, we will be going only uphill with the path first starting as a paved road and gradually transforming into narrow path. We will cross alpine pastures used by shepherds to graze the cattle during the summer. Conquering the summit, we will be rewarded with a breath-taking view of the Swiss Riviera and Lavaux Vineyard Terraces (UNESCO World Heritage Site), unseen from elsewhere. For the way down, we will take a barely used trail that will take us through the dense forest on the southern slope of Grammont. We will end our journey in picturesque town of Le Bouveret, where you will take a boat back to Montreux.
