The «Bisse du Milieu» and the «Bisse Vieux» pass through spruce and larch forests, pass by chalets and pastures and irrigate the strawberry and raspberry fields.
At «Planchouet» and «Bleusy», take some time to admire their chapels dating back to the 1930’s. There is the possibility to have a restaurant meal or snack along the way.
This walk is a comfortable hike linking both sides of the valley towards «Planchouet» and «Lavantier». A highly recommended walk for families.
DISCOVER NENDAZ, THE LAND OF THE «BISSES»
Scorched by the sun and often difficult to access, the valleys of the Valais are irrigated by «Bisses»- water channels - follow their course along fascinating paths. In Nendaz you’ll find 8 «Bisses» and 6 still with water.
Dug into the ground, carved out of rock, or even attached to it, the scars of the Bisses are reminders of the constant battle against drought waged by the region's farmers. Today, gentle yet spectacular paths lead along these old water channels. The eight channels of Nendaz are particularly famous - for example, the high level walk along the Bisse de Chervé with views of the whole of the Rhone Valley, or the path to the enchanted idyll and waterfalls of the Bisse Vieux.
