The Diablerets (French: Les Diablerets) is a mountain in the Bernese Alps, located between the cantons of Valais and Vaud, in the western French-speaking part of Switzerland. The summit (indicated as Sommet des Diablerets) is 3,210 metres high, making it the highest mountain in the canton of Vaud. The mountain is located near the homonymous village and ski resort of Les Diablerets. On the south and Valais side it overlooks the hamlet and valley of Derborence. The south face overlooks the Pas de Cheville.

The summit from the south side

The small Glacier des Diablerets is located near the summit on the Valais side. The much larger Glacier de Tsanfleuron (often called Glacier des Diablerets) descends from a prominence east of the summit called Le Dôme toward the Sanetsch Pass. Several ski lifts are located on it. The Tsanfleuron Glacier can be accessed easily via the Scex Rouge by an aerial tramway from the Col du Pillon, operated by Glacier 3000.

The massif of the Diablerets consists of several secondary peaks:
