Great hike in the gorges with stairs to ascend.

“The Combe-Grède is a particularly peaceful and wild nature reserve. Its almost vertical cliffs are home to chamois and marmots, but also very impressive to us mere humans. I am a sporty person, but still i will not forget the steep upward hike to the summit of Chasseral. From the ridge, the panoramic view of the plateau, the Three-Lakes Region and the Bernese alps, quickly made me forget the effort I had made.”
