Randonnée - From Les Chaux to Les Diablerets

Les Chaux - Taveyanne - Coufin - Alpage du Col de la Croix - Tréchadèze - Les Diablerets

At the start of this hike, take the lift between Barboleuse and Les Chaux. Then, head for the hamlet of Taveyanne and walk down towards Coufin. Then follow the path up towards the Col de la Croix mountain pastures, where Etivaz cheese is still made during the summer season (mid-June to end August).
