Hey,
 
Winter is coming ! We organise what should be one of the last hikes of the semester before it gets really cold and starts snowing everywhere.
 
The hike will start from Les Cases and go for 4,5km on an easy hiking path, then starts getting a bit harder for 1km before getting to the hardest point until we get to the Naye grottos. We'll probably eat before getting to this point. There will then be a possibility either to go through the caves or by a stair that flanks the mountain. If you're willing to go through the cave you have to take a headlamp or at least a flashlight (and don't forget the batteries!). Exploring the caves, we'll walk on a creast towards the Rocher de Naye, and stop at Marmotte Paradis where you'll get to see those little balls of fur that are marmots :). We'll then climb down the rock and walk to the Jaman station where you'll be able to enjoy a beer with your friends. For those who still have strenght you can walk up to the Dent de Jaman !
We'll then come back to Jaman to take the train back to Lausanne.
 
Don't forget anything we ask you to bring, and bring your good mood as well ! :)
 
Concerning the shoes : IF YOU DON'T HAVE SUITABLE SHOES FOR THE HIKE, YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO COME.
 
Please also take not that if it happens to rain we will cancel the event as it might be dangerous for your safety.
 
Please also, bring the exact amount of money to make sure to be able to register.

 
 
See you soon!
Your ESN EPF Lausanne committee


PS: the hike could be canceled in case of bad weather (security first).
