On the second day of our birthday getaway in Les Diablerets the weather was amazing, so we decided to take the bus to Col du Pillon and from there the cable car up to the glacier.
There are actually two cable cars: the first one to get you up there, and a second one that goes from one peak to another.
The cable car departs from 1546 meters high and arrives at 2971m! It’s quite a ride but it’s worth it for the views!
Once up there we took a ski lift to an area in the snow where there were a few activities happening, however we just enjoyed the view and walked a bit in the snow.
Then back up to the real adventure: crossing a suspension bridge that connects two mountain peaks! It wasn’t as scary as expected so that was good thing.😉
For people who are used to doing sports like ski or snowboard and that spend the Winter months in the mountains, a view like this is a normal thing to see. But I’m not one of those, so I couldn’t stop snapping! I hope these photos can translate the immensity of the landscape.
We also had lunch up there and then took the cable car back down for a hike in the forest – but that’s a story for a whole new post.😉
