Hi Manipand,

Thanks for your nice words, I'm glad you find our website useful! Leysin is not a good base to explore attractions all over Switzerland, but there are certainly several you can cover. Which attractions did you have in mind? What are your interests? The Lake Geneva region is nearby, and a day trip to Zermatt is long but doable.

A rail pass becomes relevant once you know what you'll be doing during your stay, but you can already look into all the details here.

<<"We have booked apartments at Leysin from 12 Sept to 19 Sept">>

Arno has offered some comments, and that region of Switzerland is attractive to visit. I have stayed there and 3njoyed walking on the hills and trails. But, it takes a while to get to other well known sites. Nice train rides, though.

Montreux is a nice town on the lake. A walk in the vineyards near Grandvaux or above Cully or on the ridge overlooking the lake above Puidoux can be quite pleasant, but those walks are not what one usually goes to Switzerland for.

Geneva is probably worth a visit. I can't offer a balanced opinion, bcause I worked there for a while, and had enough of it.

If I were doing it myself, I'd change my apartment booking to Luzern or Interlaken, for less time on the same trains each day (down from Leysin down to the main line), and closeness to some of the best sites for tourists.

Otherwise, some hard work with the timetable and a map will give you some ideas on travel times.
