Via ferrata - Lavanchy Via Ferrata

The Lavanchy Via Ferrata is 25 minutes from Pont de Nant above Bex at the foot of the Vaud Alps. It’s a very short but intense and athletic Via Ferrata. Since it’s well hidden in the forest, make sure you find out exactly where it is before you set off.

The Lavanchy Via Ferrata is 25 minutes from Pont de Nant above Bex. It’s a very short but intense and athletic Via Ferrata.

When you get to Pont-de-Nant, take the surfaced road (not open to traffic) to Le Richard for about 2 kilometres then a little track on the left and then directly right after the tree growing on a rock. You can also take your GPS or a recent topographical map (scale 25,000).

The Via Ferrata starts with 2 overhangs then get easier but very aerial. It takes about 15 minutes. Although it’s not highly equipped, it’s easy to handle. It takes 30 minutes to get back by following along the cliff then through fields down to Pont-de-Nant.
