Paid parking in Vevey or Blonay near the train station.
Created in 1911, the Vevey les Pléiades train is managed and operated by GoldenPass Services like the other funiculars and trains on the Vaud Riviera. Between Vevey and Blonay, the train is normal and rack and pinion from Blonay to the summit. From Blonay you can reach Chamby by a tourist steam train.
Summit of les Pléiades
From the terminal station of les Pléiades, you can reach the summit at 1361 m in a few minutes. At this point is Astropléiades, a park offering experiments on sky observation. You can eat or have a drink at the nearby restaurant which offers a playground for the little ones and a nice view of the Lake Geneva basin.
Walks at Les Pléiades
As shown on this map, you can go back down to Blonay by train but also on foot by taking the Claude Nicollier educational trail in an hour and a half. Another path runs along the railway track at the beginning of the route and allows you to take the train back to Fayaud halfway or to go to Blonay as well.
