Walk – Gypsum Pyramids

This walk with stunning views of the Vaud Alps takes you to the gypsum pyramids, a fascinating geological feature found at the Col de la Croix.

From Bretaye station, take the road down towards Villars for 50 m. Then take the path to the left underneath the Roc à l'Ours. Follow this lovely path to Ensex. Walk through the village and continue to the Col de la Croix where you’ll find the famous gypsum pyramids nearby. Then you climb the little path to the Col d'Encrène, then down the path winding through the alders to the Chemin de Perche. Head left and, just before the village of Perche, take the right path towards "Vy Boveyre". When you’re on the little mountain road, turn left and follow it until you arrive above Lake Les Chavonnes. Take the left path to the edge of the lake where you’ll find a delightful restaurant. Then continue back to the path underneath the chair lift which takes you back to Bretaye.
