I would like some advice. I'll be in montreux from 15 June till 17th. So on 16th which excursion should I prefer rochers de naye or glacier 3000. I know only one of them is possible . Which is more scenic and breathtaking. thanks for the advice in advance .

ps I'll be going to jungfrajoch and my titlis in the later part of my trip.

thanks

Hi impactedmind,

Both are nice mountains, I suppose the Glacier 3000 is similar in feel/look to Titlis and Jungfraujoch though.

You can read about Rochers De Naye here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/rochersdenaye as I haven't been there.

I have been to the Glacier 3000 and have a trip report with pictures you can check out here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/forum/topic/day-trip-to-glacier-3000-near-gstaad

Hej Impactedmind,

I am the other way around from Lucas. I have not done the Glacier 3000 (hope to do so this year) but have gone up to the Rochers de Naye. First of all, les Rochers is a relatively short trip, particularly since you are going to be in Montreux. You take the train from Montreux via Glion and Caux to the stop at the end of the line (1968 metres), and from there you can follow a path to the peak (2042 metres). The view is very scenic, looking down to Lake Geneva and over to the French side of the shore. Why not check out a few videos on YouTube, such as this one ? youtu.be/_Eox9Qr28iM

Lucas did a report on Glacier 3000 which I enjoyed. This will be a longer trip and doubtlessly more expensive. At the top you will be at 2971 metres, much higher than the Rochers de Naye. Check out this on YouTube as well.
