Col du Jorat – Panorama of the Salanfe circus
From the Inn, take the trail that goes behind the second building (above the swings). Follow it until you cross the irrigation channel (1) and then follow along it. The trail is quite steep, be careful not to slip here. The trail joins the road at a bend (2). Continue along the road until you reach the Petit Col [minor pass] and then the Jorat Pass (3). If you climb a little higher in the direction of Salentin, you will get superb views over the Chablais, Lake Geneva, the Alps and the Salanfe basin. There are many alpine ibex who like to pass the summer on the slopes of Salentin. If you get up early enough, some of them may even be there to greet you at the pass – keep an eye out!
Return along the road, going through Saut Péca (4).
NB: at the beginning of the season, snow remaining between the minor pass and the Jorat pass can make accessing it quite risky.
