Tour description

Hike for pre-warned walkers, beautiful walk which combines forest paths, pastures and high rocky passages along a mountain ridge which overlooks the Printse valley with a backdrop of the Bernese Alps and the Rhone Valley.



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.
