Trekking - Plan Nevé mountain shelter

Les Plans-sur-Bex - Pont-de-Nant - Le Richard - La Vare - Plan Névé shelter - Le Richard - Les Plans-sur-Bex.

The effort involved in getting to the Plan-Névé mountain shelter is amply rewarded by the warm welcome, delicious tarts and spectacular view.

The climb to the Plan-Névé mountain shelter is tough, especially on the last sharp bends, but the spectacular views of the valley and Lake Geneva in the background are well worth the effort.

The shelter offers dormitory accommodation.
