Scex-Rouge - Dôme - Scex-Rouge
Easy Alpine route
The ingredients for an extraordinary experience at the summit are quite simple: a wide and pleasant trail, surrounded by stones and rocks, pure fresh air to breathe and a breath-taking view. The Dome Hike is a magnificent walk that starts from the station of Scex Rouge at the summit to the Dome located at 3,016 meters above sea level. Once you reach the summit, you will probably be blown away - not literally but by the breath-taking view of the glacier, the valleys below and the summit of Les Diablerets - a just reward for all your efforts!
By the post bus from the station at Les Diablerets to the Col du Pillon then the Glacier 3000 cable car (Col du Pillon - Scex-Rouge).
Access to Scex-Rouge is also possible on foot from the Col du Pillon (about 4h30)
Free parking at the Col du Pillon.
