Tour description

Discovering contrasts - hike from the Varen Alp along the Suonen (water conduits) through the southern slope that has been dried by the sun - but boasts lush vegetation.
The Suonen hike begins at the Leuk Railway Station (630 m) and leads up to Leuk (724 m), a town that is renowned for its cultural history. Hike over the imposing Dala Bridge in the direction of the wine village of Varen (757 m) and up to the Taschunieru hamlet (933 m). After a further short ascent you will reach the entrance to the Varner Suone (large water conduit) (980 m). The course of the Suone/Bisse leads through the rock fall region of the Varner Alp. The language border the wild Raspille is crossed at La Proprija (981 m). The path leads through the francophone localities of Miège (nearby is Muzot Castle, where Rilke completed the Duino Elegies) and Veyras to Siders (542 m).
