Up! Up! Up! and Up!




In Monteux Switzerland, we climbed up the mountain by cogwheel train to the peak, Rochers de Naye. The ride was spectacular and the winter landscape, breathtaking. At the top, we visited Santa. We observed one of his reindeer there too, who must have been prepping for the big Christmas night ride, because each time we watched him, he was busy eating. Here are a few of the scenes we saw along the way…




















We opted out, but if you'd like, you can let the last train descend without you.   So you can stay at the peak of the mountain, overnight, for a mere 500CHF, in one of these yurts.
