SwitzerlandMobility: route SS 271
Charmey: Cable Car, midway station - Cable Car, Vounetse
From the midway station on the cable car, take the path that drops down to Charmey and then turn right to climb up towards Vounetse. The path passes a mountain chalet with a roof made from timber shingles. The route then climbs steadily along the edge of the forest. As you walk, you will have views of the Jogne valley, the Dent de Broc and the Vanil Noir in turn. When you reach the Tissinèva chalet, walk along the ridge to reach the summit. The second part of the walk offers one of the most beautiful panoramic views of La Gruyère and its main peaks: The Berra, the Vanil Noir and the Moléson.
You can take a break along the way at L’Auberge chez Dudu, a mountain restaurant with a magnificent view over the Fribourg Pre-Alps. The Dents Vertes restaurant on the Vounetse summit is also open all winter.
You have two options for your descent: retracing your steps or taking the cable car.
