montreux col de jaman

Dent de Jaman and Rochers de Naye are located in the prealps of Vaud, which is straight above Montreux and Villeneuve as seen in this picture.

The Dent de Jaman is visible from Villeneuve (just before exit to Montreux) as a big, tooth-like rock. Its side towards the lake is almost vertical. The opposite side, although steep, can be climbed without any special rock climbing techniques. There is a path, leading to the top, where, as often happens, big wooden (oak?) cross is installed.

Rochers de Naye is a top point (2041 m a.s.l.) of a ~1 km tilted ridge, on the South from Dent de Jaman. There is a cog wheel train going during summer time from Villeneuve to Glion, Caux up to Rochers de Naye.

The Train upper station is built at the back side of Rochers de Naye, almost at the top. It has a couple of restaurants, one of which is reached via a long tube through the rock - to the side facing the lake, and offers a beautiful panorama and has a restaurant.

As well, when going to Interlaken, you go through les avants and shortly after that you find yourself in a big tunnel which is actually the inside of the col de jaman.
