La Palette

Above Isenau, La Palette reaches a height of 2,200 metres. Offering you a mountain-top view of Les Diablerets, it's part of the walk around the mountain.

To get to Isenau, start your hike from the Retaud lake (access with public transport "Diablobus" during the Free Access Card period or by car).

Follow the trail which leads to Isenau (30 minute walk distance).

From Isneau, you start with an easy footpath towards La Marnèche, then continue along the little road edged with rhododendrons, which turns this path into a road just before you get to the Chalet d'Isenau, a big, beautifully situated mountain pasture chalet. Have a short stop to watch how l'Etivaz cheese is made and buy some of the products made here.

Follow then the path that cuts straight along the pylons of the drag lift to the Col des Andérets. Follow the yellow arrow and take the right fork to the summit of La Palette, where you'll instantly catch sight of the blue patch of Lake Arnon, nestled in the dark green of the surrounding forest. After this, you'll come to Feutersoey, Pays de Gessenay and the Bernese Oberland.

After a well-deserved break at the top of La Palette, you attack the steep slope back down to La Marnèche. Finish this amazing hike by heading to Retaud Lake or walking to Les Diablerets.
