** SALTY Hike!! - Plambuit to Bex ** Picture
Sunday, December 11th, 2022 @ 11:00
Aigle not, Lausanne
NB: Come prepared for some snow on the ground, but snow shoes NOT required.

This is supposed to be an educational hike about the salt industry, but it’s also a very pleasant hike through varying terrain, starting in the hills above Aigle and finishing in the town of Bex.

Total Hiking Time: 3.5 hours plus time for a picnic lunch
Elevation: 200m up - 500m down and some hilly bits inbetween
Kilometres: 13.5kms
Difficulty: Reasonably easy mountain terrain

Start at Plambuit Train Stop, going through the hamlets of Salin, Panex, Glutieres, Antagnes, Le Bevieux & ending up at Bex. THIS IS NOT A CIRCULAR HIKE.


Accessible by car or train as far as Aigle – we then ALL take the train from Aigle to Plambuit where the hike starts.

If you come by train – buy your SINGLE ticket all the way through to Plambuit as you only have 3 minutes to change trains in Aigle (or get an earlier train). We return from Bex.

If you come by car – allow at least 15 minutes to find a parking space in Aigle (the CFF car park will charge you CHF7 for the day) and buy a SINGLE ticket to Plambuit. We return from Bex..

11h15 Aigle Gare Platform 13/14 – to be on the 11h29 train to Plambuit

Return Trains depart Bex at 00h35 minutes past the hour.

Picnic Lunch & something TO SIT ON!! (the picnic benches may be occupied)
Good Hiking/Walking Shoes
Usual water/drinks/nibbles
Suitable clothing – forecast VERY COLD
POLES – 70% of the hike is downhill

If you miss the train – you miss the hike. We won’t wait if you’re late. Call or text me if you have queries – 079 834 7292
