Mont Salève

For the best views, take this route down!

1,380-meter Mont Salève is part of the Jura chain and the first ridge of the Alps rising southeast of Geneva. Though in France, its proximity to Geneva makes it an ideal destination for Swiss hikers, skiers, mountain bikers, rock climbers and paragliders.

Getting set up

The paragliders run down the mountain…

…and are swept away!

The steep bald side faces Geneva and the gently sloping southern side overlooks Mont Blanc and the Savoy Alps. Opposite is Jura hills.

Take the cable car to the top and get down however you’d like!
