The Grand Muveran is a mountain in the Bernese Alps. At 3,051 metres it is the highest summit lying west of Pas de Cheville and the westernmost three-thousander of the Bernese Alps. It is located on the border between Vaud and Valais. On the latter side is the village of Ovronnaz where the easiest route to the summit starts, via the Rambert Hut.
