Col du Pillon - Cabane des Diablerets - Scex-Rouge
A tough hike in the mountains
This demanding mountain hike starts at Col du Pillon, near the downstream station of Glacier 3000 and lasts more than four hours. A winding mountain path leads to the CAS hut "Cabane des Diablerets" at 2,500 meters. The path then becomes steeper. After walking over the eternal snows of the glacier, you reach your goal: the station at the summit of Scex Rouge. On the terrace of the Botta restaurant, enjoy the magnificent panorama and savour its culinary delights. The cable car descends to the valley every 20 minutes. Those who still have enough energy can walk back, which will take about two and a half hours.
By the post bus from the station at Les Diablerets to the Col du Pillon.
Free parking at the Col du Pillon.
