Tréchauffé viewpoint


Belvédère de Tréchauffé
74200La Forclaz

The magnificient viewpoint at Tréchauffé affords a panorama that stretches from Switzerland to France. Here you can penetrate the story of Evian mineral water, and by taking a stroll you can also discover a traditional high summer farm known as an "alpage".


The Tréchauffé viewpoint is one the 20 iconic sites of the UNESCO Chablais Geopark. On site you can learn about Evian mineral water, the Rhone glacier and Geneva lake (lac Léman). The Tréchauffé Alpage tells of the agricultural production during the summer season. Here, everything has been thought trough for the cattle and their herdsmen.

On returning to the car park there is a path leading down to the goat farm "Le Chamois". In summertime, the farmers invite you to visit the alpage and taste their products. You can also take the footpath opposite the car park that leads up the hill. This climbs out of the alpage before entering the forest. You will first reach the Pointe de Sangeon (altitude 1 445 m), then the Pointe de Tréchauffé (altitude 1 627 m).
