La Grande Crevasse, Leysin

excursión Suiza andar Vaud Leysin

La Grande Crevasse, Leysin. A few months ago we went to Leysin to enjoy the views from La Berneuse and to hike from there until the village http://www.lovingswitzerland.com/2013/11/leysin-la-berneuse-2048m-vaud.html This wans't feasible beacuse of the amount of snow, so we went down in the telecabine and we started another hiking path, from Leysin there's a lot of possibilities! Leysin is one of the highest villages in the Alpes Vaudoises, it's placed over a plateau at 1263 metres of altitude, Our choice was to hike a not so long walk to La Grande Crevasse, a place with a breathtaking view of Leman's lake.

La Grande Crevasse, Leysin. Hace unos meses fuimos a Leysin para ver el restaurante giratorio que se encuentra en La Berneuse y  hacer una marcha andando desde allí hasta el pueblo. http://www.lovingswitzerland.com/2013/11/leysin-la-berneuse-2048m-vaud.html Vimos que el camino de bajada no era posible debido a la cantidad de nieve que había, así que bajamos con el telecabina y comenzamos otra ruta de hiking. Desde Leysin hay muchísimas opciones. De hecho, es uno de los pueblos a mayor altitud en los Alpes Vaudoises, situado a 1263 metros sobre una meseta. Nuestra elección fue La Grande Crevasse.

In our way we found a nice restaurant in a wooden chalet. We drank a hot tea and we continued our way to this magnificent view point, overlooking the Rhone Valley and Léman's Lake. The temperature was really cold with snow all around us.

De camino, paramos en un restaurante típico, un chalet de madera muy acogedor, donde bebimos algo caliente y continuamos hacia el mirador de La Grande Crevasse. Se ve el Valle del Rhone y el lago Léman.
