Mt Saleve

Hi

I've just read about visiting Mt Saleve on this site, but still a bit confused.

So I get a tram, get off at last stop. Get a cable car to top of mountain for an amazing view of Geneva.

Don't need passport on border, but do need Euros for drinks/food.

Can anyone be more specific with times/places/price

Thanks

Yes, to what you summarise above. You technically need to carry id with you at all times anyway, but no passport check at border. Times, prices etc in below link.

You take bus 8 from the Rive station in Geneva ( or anywhere else on its line) to Veyrier. get off at the end of the route. Walk into France and take the cable car up.

If you want bus timetables for Geneva use this:

If you fancy it, you can also travel right down to the other end of the lake for cracking views looking back along the lake and mountains. To do this, take the train from Geneva to Montreux station and then the little train from Montreux staiton up to the Rochers de Naye. It's a one hour train journey winding up and up, and is very rewarding on a clear day.

When you visit Mt. Saleve, make sure you visit the Tibetan Buddhist Temple, only 200m from the Cable car station. This authentic Tibetan Temple was consecrated and opened by the Dali Lama in September 2011.There is a small restaurant/cafe with great views of the Mont Blanc and Geneva and its lake.
