An impressive hike to the top of Chasseral with steps to climb.

The Combe Grède is a particularly quiet and wild natural reserve. Its almost vertical cliffs are the favorite ground of chamois and marmots. The ultimate goal of this hike is the Chasseral peak and its panoramic view on the three lakes and the Alps. Typical of the Grand Chasseral, the farmhouses await the visitor for a thirst-quenching drink or a regional dish, often prepared with products made on the spot, for a pleasant break during this sporty climb.
