Trekking - Roc d'Orsay-Plambuit

Roc d'Orsay - Col d'Argnaules - La Truche - Plambuit/Villars

Set off on a panoramic walk through mountain pastures and forests.

Starting from Roc d'Orsay (via gondola or train to Bretaye), take the path to the right, below the Roc d'Orsay gondola station. Then head in the direction of Col d'Argnaules in the heart of the forest. You then get to a huge meadow, at Plan Savoureu, with panoramic views of Villars, the Rhône valley and Leysin. Keep going down until you get to La Truche and from here, there are two options:
- continue on to Plambuit to finish your walk (road to the right when you get to La Truche). There’s a train service from Plambuit to Aigle or Les Diablerets.
- continue on to Les Ecovets then at the end of a small sloping tarmac road, you head in the direction of Villars via Les Chavasses and back to the bottom of the gondolas.
