Having had to pay extra to get to the summit (although we were told that the Rail Pass would cover the whole journey) I was disappointed in what we found. The whole place was a little run down and unkempt. The marmots were not to be seen. Didn't stay up there long at all.

We decided to drive this magnificent mountain and were greeted with outstanding views of the lake at some of the lowest points and as we drove higher we found some lovely places that you could park and enjoy a picnic but unfortunately we were unprepared for this but I would highly recommend you give this a try as it would...

It is really paradise, not only fo the marmots. The trip by train up there is worth the trip in itself, the marmots are such lovely creatures, and the views and smells of alpine flowers are enchanting!

Taking the short train ride from Montreux to Caux is very scenic! Starting from Caux, you can do a leisurely hike up to Rochers-de-Naye. The trail follows a road through the trees and there are a couple of nice outlooks along the way. Up at the top there are great views especially if you walk past the marmot pens along... More

Our Swiss friends recommended this outing. We left Geneve in the morning on the train after buying 2 return tickets Geneve-Rocher-de-Naye (1/2 price for teens under 16). The trip took 1h to Montreux and another hour to the top. Everything went smoothly (Swiss punctuality is amazing). The cog railway trip is great and leaves every hour. Stunning views on the... More

For a quick taste of the alps, take the cog train to this mountain. The hikes, to irregular hikers, can prove very challenging with significant elevations in thin air, and some tricky terrain over snow patches. Spectacular views from the top, including hand gliders launching nearby.

This cog railway to Rochers-de-Naye operates from platform 8 in Montreux station and is an amazing trip from beginning to end. However, you do need to do it on a clear day to be able to enjoy the stunning scenery along the way and the panoramic views from the summit. Once at the summit we took a walk though the... More

A lovely ride up the mountain on the cog train, but you will only appreciate the views if the weather is clear. Very nice little alpine garden to walk around, with many plants and flowers.

We decided to visit Rochers-de-Naye because my wife wanted to see the Marmot Paradise. There weren't so many marmots out that day, but the ones that were out were so cute. One was sunbathing for about an hour. We missed the Canadian marmots though, which is a shame. We also spent some time hiking and ate our lunch with a... More

Brilliant day out with lunch at the top. Walk around the rim of the mountain and take in the views. All in all a very good day out.
