Day 1: The first stage of our walking tour starts at the Col-de-Bretaye, which we reach by train from Villars-sur-Ollon. Our route first passes through an area of small lakes, before taking in the views of the Muverans massif. Past the Col de la Croix and its pyramids, we begin our descent to the famous mountain resort of Les Diablerets.

Day 2: From Les Diablerets, we first take a bus to the Col du Pillon, from where we begin our ascent northwards. One small and one large lake later, we enter the Pays-d'Enhaut nature park. From here, we descend gently to the hamlet of L'Etivaz, home of the delicious cheese of the same name.

Day 3: Our third and final stage takes us through the wildest part of the route, in the Pierreuse nature reserve. This is the stage with the most elevation gain, but we walk at a gentle pace to take in the magnificent scenery.
