OverviewAn easy hike in the Jura mountains, at the beginning of the spring.
Getting ThereBy car, train or bus to Le Brassus. If you get there by car and plan to return from Vallorbe by train, choose a parking place closer to the railway station.
Route DescriptionThis is an easy hike across the mountains on the eastern side of the Vallée de Joux. It takes you on the Mont Tendre (1679m/5509ft) - the highest peak of the Swiss Jura - and Dent de Vaulion (1483m/4865ft), two of the most interesting places in the Jura mountains. Both offer a wonderful panoramic view on the surrounding mountains. At the end of the trip you can visit the Orbe Cave.
The easiest way to return to Le Brassus is by train, which runs every hour from Vallorbe (30 mins from the Orbe cave).
