Solalex - Anzeinde - Pas de Cheville - Derborence
One of the region’s great hiking classics, through a rocky alpine landscape
Starting from Solalex, head in the direction of Anzeinde along the rocky path winding between a stream and larch trees.
From Anzeinde, keep going to Pas de Cheville, then cross a large open meadow.
From Pas de Cheville, the high point of this hike, you head downhill to the Derborence Valley where cows graze peacefully in the alpine pastures. You’re now in the canton of Valais.
Follow the forest path to Derborence and its glittering lake.
There’s a mountain lodge on the edge of the lake.
You can return to Solalex by the same route.
There’s a bus service between Derborence and Ovronnaz.
A few pointers:
- Stay on the marked paths
- Make sure you know your route and the weather conditions
- Respect flora and fauna
