Trekking - Lac Retaud – Juwel von Les Diablerets

Lac Retaud - Col du Pillon - Cascade du Dar - Les Diablerets

Discover one of the 7 Wonders of Les Diablerets on this family hike: Retaud Lake.

Starting from Retaud Lake (take the Diablobus during the Free Access Card period), follow the footpath down through the vast meadows to Col du Pillon. Cross the road to join the Le Dar trail. This pretty route takes you through forests and pastures along the winding river to Les Diablerets.
In fine weather, you can have a swim in the lake or a picnic on the shores of this tranquil stretch of water. You can also dip your feet in the little pools at the bottom of Le Dar waterfall: fresh, cool water guaranteed!
