The Suisse Rando association introduced its Swiss hiking night in 2006. Numerous local groups make this hiking night a unique and memorable event for young and old alike.
This year Pays-d'Enhaut Tourisme offers an itinerary adapted to every age to visit Monts-Chevreuils under the moonlight. The trail is riskless and accompanied by a mountain guide. You will discover the Monts-Chevreuils high pastures and from the top, at 1749 metres above sea level, you will admire the 360° panorama, with a view on Lac l'Hongrin and the Pays-d'Enhaut valley.

Before going back to the departure point, you will have time to contemplate the moon and the starry night from the deck of the cabin, or all along the way down.
