Owner description: From the Rochers-de-Naye, towering at an altitude of 2,042 meters, you can enjoy an amazing view on the lake and the mountains. Get to this peace of heaven with the cog railway leaving from Montreux. Many activities as well as two restaurants, an hotel and Mongolian yurts will give real pleasure to adults and children all the year long.

This was a nice short train ride from Montreux. We went on a day in May 2013 where there were many clouds & rain, so we did not see much from there. We also did not see any marmots. The ride was nice & the walk around there was also good. There was snow on the ground. We did not see wild flowers. Like other train rides & peaks in Switzerland, pick & choose which ones you want to go to as there are so many, you cannot go to them all. On your way down, consider getting off at an earlier stop & then walking down - it is quite nice to follow trails or the road & walk through the various parts of the town.

We had the swiss pass, so we paid 25 chf for an adult tkt, the children under 16 are free, we went up using a very scenic route and we reached the top after about 1 hr , this waa from montreux station, it was a sunny day, we didn't need jackets, the weather was just perfect, the view was very clear, we could see lac leman below us as if we were on a plane, of course the children didn't care except for the marmots thst we have promised they would see, but.....there was no marmots, I guess it is a shy creature that doesn't like the crowd, but there was no crowd!!!
I kept thinking why they don't give the marmots some training to entertain the kids especially with so much publicity about the marmots, too bad that I missed visiting the alpine garden but any how there were beautiful flowers all over the place, some of our best photos were shot in rochers de Naye.

Quite expensive to excess by mountain train but well worth a visit. There are quite a number of outdoor pursuits for the young and able bodied but nice walks for us 'oldies' as well. A lot of para-gliders the day we visited.

I guess the views over Montreux and Lake Geneva must be fantastic but unfortunately the day of our visit was quite cloudy.

We did however enjoy the walks and the various alpine flowers.

I have attached some photographs.

the view is perfect. But it takes a lot of time and money to get the train 'til the top of the mountain. Get your camera ready for astonishing pictures

We took the train halfway up and the did the via ferrata to the top. The train also supports mountain bikers and paragliders. The views of Montreux, the lake and the mountains are spectacular.
