Mont Pèlerin (1,080 metres (3,540 ft)) (lit. "pilgrim mountain") is a mountain of the Swiss Prealps, overlooking Lake Geneva in the Swiss canton of Vaud. It lies north of Chardonne, near Vevey, the border with the canton of Fribourg running at the northern foot of the mountain.

The Vevey–Chardonne–Mont Pèlerin funicular links Vevey and Mont Pèlerin. The Mont Pèlerin TV Tower is located on the wooded summit.

The Mont Pelerin Society was named after the resort, following its inception at a meeting there in 1947.
