As we cannot go to FR due to the CV-19 restrictions, let's be patriotic and hike in CH - in Vaud.

This spectacular gorge and panoramic view hike leads from Môtiers through the Poeta Raisse gorge to Le Chasseron peak.
Initially walking past many grottos and along the stream through the narrow gorge, we then emerge form the forest and follow a ridge and walk on an alpage to the summit.
Going down we try a little loop.
Time permitting we may visit a medieval abbey on way back.

Distance: 14 km
Est duration:5h30
Ascent Protected content
Difficulty 2.5/5
