About the hike
Join Vanessa on a Sunday hike to the Dent de Jaman! We take the little train from Montreux train station up to Caux, where we will begin our climb to Dent de Jaman. The top of the dent gives us a sensational view of the Lac Leman and the dents de midi. We pass by the Merdasson, besides its name which can make you smile, it’s really a nice little summit much less known (and run) than the Rochers-de-Naye or the Dent de Jaman and well… the view is still damn good! 😉 From here we can go up to Dent de Jaman and then come back down to Caux. The whole area makes for spectacular viewing and picnic spots. Important: For this hike you should bring a good physical condition!
By train to Montreux:
– From Zurich approx. 2 hours 45 minutes
– From Bern approx. 1 hour 15 minutes
– Departure at 10.41 am from Caux station.
– Cost of the return journey approx. CHF 75 (with half-fare card)
The hike will take about 4 – 6 hours (with breaks). If necessary, there are various possibilities along the hike to shorten our tour.
You can find more info about the tour below on our Komoot profile. By the way: If you send us an email with your first and last name to firstname.lastname@example.org, we will even give you a Komoot region package of your choice!
How to sign up
To register, please fill out the form below. Please note that your registration is binding. The places are limited to max. 15 ppl. After your registration you will soon receive a confirmation and a message from the organizer Vanessa.
IMPORTANT: If you are unexpectedly unable to attend, please let us know by June 1st at the latest, so that we can give others from the waiting list the opportunity to come along. Participants who cancel on shorter notice will be excluded from future events. We strive to offer our events free of charge and invest a lot of our free time in these events (we are all volunteers), but unfortunately we have experienced many no-shows/no-responses or super last-minute cancellations in recent years, which is demotivating for the organizers. Therefore, we had to establish this rule.
Disclaimer / please note
The hike is free of charge, but our organizers are always happy to receive a small tip via TWINT for their volunteer work (organizing a hike takes about three days of effort). The number will be announced after registration. Food and drinks are not included in our hikes and must be brought by yourself. Participation is at your own risk and responsibility, as we are only a volunteer community of friends and not an official tour provider. You are therefore asked to agree to a disclaimer below when registering. You can also find more info in our FAQ.
