I arrived in Villars in early July of 2021, ready to experience the beautiful nature that the "Alpes Vaudoises" region has to offer. While I did have the luxury of staying at my parents' house this summer, I believe much of the information is present here will be valuable to travellers and backpackers who seek mountaineering adventures.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
Stay the night at Cabane Plan Neve (we hiked up for dinner and hiked back down the same night - rough)
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Not for me
How was the food?
- Resto de Taveyanne - Alpage de Bovonne (very simple, but cheap and a great view!)
What tips would you give a friend?
Go for a fondue at Restaurant de Taveyanne. It's a great vibe. Solalex is a good alternative.
- Plenty of warm clothes, seriously. Especially if you're planning to spend the night outside in the mountains. It gets very cold! - Cash for mountain huts (not all take card) - Bring lots of water!! There are not always water sources even if you have a filter.
Definitely rent a car or motorcycle. Public transport will not get you to most trailheads
