Cable cars


To access the hanging bridge, you have to take two cable cars that link the Col du Pillon at 1541 metres near the village of Les Diablerets to the summit of the Scex Rouge at almost 3000 metres via the “Tête aux Chamois” stop. The cable cars are built in 1964 for the “expo 64” Swiss national exhibition and renovated in 1999. Because of the altitude, it is important to bring warm clothes.

Peak Walk by Tissot


Once at the summit station, you climb stairs to take the footbridge called “Peak Walk by Tissot” which is 107 m long and 80 cm wide and connects two rocky peaks. Built in 2014, it is the only footbridge in the world that connects two summits together. It offers a magnificent view of the Alps, including the Matterhorn, Mont-Blanc and the Eiger.

Note a tripoint, i.e. a common point between the cantons of Bern, Vaud and Valais at the summit of the Bec d’Audon near Glacier 3000.
