THE DIAGONAL OF THE VAUD ALPS

110KM AND 7’300 M D+

An exceptional ultra-trail for exceptional landscapes: after a departure in Bex, the route will quickly stimulate your legs to go from 500m to 2500m and face the Muverans, before diving into the magnificent region of Pont-de-Nant, Anzeinde and Solalex. After this first part, which will leave no one indifferent, it will be time to pass over the region of Villars and cross the Col de la Croix and Chamossaire before heading towards Leysin and its magnificent towers of Mayen and Aï. A wonderful view of Lake Léman, but first you have to reach the Rochers de Naye and descent through the majestic Gorges du Chauderon before arriving in Montreux, 1600 meters below.

MAGICAL you said? MAGISTRAL we answer you! Time to play!
