Maximum altitude: 1,774 m
Difficulty level: WT 1
Approximate walking time: 3h30 (Mobile Switzerland indicates 4h00)
Mobile Switzerland route n° 460 and n° 5
To get there: Motorway A9 to Aigle. Then take direction Col des Mosses and Lécherette.
Where to park: large free car park at La Lécherette in the center of the village (side of the road).
The route begins towards the cross-country ski trail and joins the Route de l'Hongrin. Useless section to do, because you will have to take off your snowshoes to cross the road. Prefer to take the Hongrin road in the village and go on foot to the real start which is located next to the last chalet. You will join the road to Neusille. You will see that there is parking on the right turn; therefore, there is the possibility of starting the hike at this point.
The route is very well indicated until summit where you will have a magnificent view over an angle of more than 180°. Two hundred meters below, a bar awaits you...
To return to our route, you have to turn right at the corner of the refreshment bar and go down into the valley. There, things get tough because several tracks go in several directions. You have the signs which take you between "Les Plans" and "Fenil aux Veaux" and Suisse Mobile which takes you on the road to Neusille and cuts directly to the "Creux du Sina".
In short, whether you take one or the other of the routes, you will arrive anyway at the junction point which is the "Creux du Sina".
