High above the Rhone valley, near Sion lies Nendaz www. In winter time a large Ski resort with reliable snow conditions, it's slopes connecting with the ones between Verbier and Veysonnazthe region offers lots of opportunities for hikers as well. There are connections by Postauto to Sion. Interesting for hikers is the fact, that tracks along the "Bisse's" have moderate slopes. The Tourist office provides strategische option nach pumping brochures and information.
Especially helpful is the booklet with Number 2: It contains explanations about the Bisse's, panoramic views, height profiles, times, Bus stops, Restaurants. More Informations can be found in: We begin our tour near the lower end of the Bisse vieux constructed beforeat the Wanderweg sign some m on the main road from the cable car station towards Iserable.
Strategische option nach pumping a few meters we're on a field track, to the right water murmurs in its channel. The houses above and below the Bisse are getting fewer and fewer, finally we're strategische option nach pumping the forest. Steadily moderately ascending the path runs through shady trees, bypassing alp meadows. Here and there we get a view over to Nendaz, later Veysonnaz.
After about two hours we're at the Postauto stop in Lavanthier and the friendly little Restaurant "Vieux Nendaz". Back to Nendaz we choose the track along the Bisse du Milieu constructed From the Restaurant we're on the road to the left down to the river Printze.
Some m after crossing the bridge another Restaurant is inviting. The track along "our" Bisse is not explicitly mentioned on the signs although "Bisse de Vex" is. A track descends down to the Printze.
We cross the river on the strategische option nach pumping. The Bisse de Milieu is clearly visible strategische option nach pumping marked, but no name is mentioned.
We'll be passing the places where the water for the Bisse's is being tapped. Along the enjoyable track we'll also pass some creeks crossing the line of the Bisse. Precautions have been taken to protect the Bisse from damages by high-water. Built and strategische option nach pumping use untilthis is a very long Suone. As water source again it's the river Printze in the Siviez region in about m that guarantees a regular feed.
The Bisse almost surrounds the Dent de Nendaz. In some parts the channel had to be hewn into rocks, in other parts abysses were crossed on stilts, in some places strategische option nach pumping walls were built.
The sheer length made it necessary also to build three huts for the caretaker One is rebuilt at La Bourla: Although the water channel is not in use anymore, the old track is still recognizable and in many places carefully renovated, so we can admire the will and the cleverness of the people years ago.
Since the latitude of the line is between and m we have first to climb some m. The narrow path begins some m after the Cable car station. Another m and the easy walk along the Bisse Vieux is over and the fairly steep ascent to Tsable Plans is on. Partly we're on Bitumen road towards some of the newer Chalets some still under constructionpartly we're crossing alp meadows. A view into Rhone valley, or across to the Diablerets gives enough excuses for taking a short break now and then.
Arriving at alp Tsablo Plans the old, dry Bisse de Saxon doesn't impress much; that will change. We're now on a very comfortable track along the old water carrier. Strategische option nach pumping to the surrounding and available material, the channel consist of ditches, stone walls, wooden boards. In some renovated parts the technology of diverting switching the water is demonstrated; in one place with simple bars, in another a careful cut tree trunk is used as a kind of water shed La Bourla with the hut for the overseer makes one think about that guys job; in horrible weather -and all alone to fix the demolished Bisse as quick as possible!?
Later we're passing rocky areas, were the Bisse is cut into rock, or fenced by a stone wall. The track is now getting narrow, sometimes trailing under overhanging boulders. From Siviez there is track along the Printze. Walking the "other" way towards Strategische option nach pumping and Mayens de Riddes, from Nendaz to Pra da Dzeu - La Dzora, one is awarded with a lovely and easy Hike too but first there is again the ascent to the altitude of the Bisse.
In La Dzora a longer part of the Bisse is gone. A track circumventing a critical part of terrain in June the road to Mayens de Riddes and the hiking track were still covered with meters of debris will bring you to the last part in Le Rosey to the Bisse above Mayens de Riddes and Saxon. The Bisse was constructed in With an altitude between above m it's strategische option nach pumping of the highest, - and especially the strategische option nach pumping two thirds especially attractive.
I chose the route: Veysonnaz - change Beuson - Nendaz: The first part is more or less along a ski lift, crossing alpine pasture and walking in the proximity of brooks and pines. The climb up to the dam of the lake Cleuson is along a zigzag track and bit steeper then the other sections.
At the dam in the little church there is a board, remembering the eleven men who died between and because of strategische option nach pumping accident while working on the construction site. The Bisse is somewhat higher then lake Cleuson. After the first bend of the gravel driveway a narrow track brings us up directly to the old Bisse.
It's now a convenient hiking track, but often the former purpose is clearly recognizable. The first part, Cleuson to La Meina, is especially charming, the track itself, the superb view, the plants This Bisse constructed in draws her water just below Planchouet. A starting point, only in the main season, is the Bus stop on the road to Siviez Bifurcation Planchouet.
From the crossroads we have to descend on the Bitumen road to the Bridge, then across the Printze river and ascend on the other side. A board strategische option nach pumping the left of the road gives some information. After passing the two Restaurants along the road the Bisse finally is appearing, sometimes in a pipe, later in a channel, at other places open, as it used to be.
The walk along the Bisse de Vex is pleasant, for the most part in the shade of forest trees. Before entering Veysonnaz, traversing open grass land, the view stretches over to Nendaz and in the distance the mountains with the Haut de Cry.
In Veysonnaz the Bisse trail proceeds passing the cable car station to Thyonsome Restaurants, the Tourist office, then goes on towards Mayens de Sion. The Bus stop is some m from the Tourist office towards Veysonnaz village. The final section, for the most part, is again on a lovely forest track. Some m before the end, we reach the Protestant chapel. After m there is a Bus stop and the Bitumen road to Mayens de l'Ours check time table. An excellent combination, the walk along the two Bisses is easy walking, mostly in the shade of trees, with many beautiful strategische option nach pumping. Public transport between Nendaz and Veysonnaz: This 3 hrs hike provides an insight into the environment and the developments of the region.
In Tsablo Plan, at the old Bisse de Saxon, the system of collecting and distributing water is explained. The track is marked by wooden signs with a pine cone or with strategische option nach pumping name of the track. The first "post" is in the area of the sport track "Vita parcours". The blue sign for that strategische option nach pumping is visible right at the main road from the Tourist office to the cable car station, on the left, when the main road makes a sharp bend to strategische option nach pumping right.
After the introduction, there will be 10 more posts with explanations in French, but Brochures in English and other languages are available from the Tourist office. While ascending, the Bisse de Saxon can be seen from the windows of the cable car. In these area the water in the Bisse flows inside wooded channels. From the station atop with the little lake a mountain track runs to the Dent de Nendaz with a splendid view 90 min return.
La Peroua - Tracouet 2 hrs. The track at La Peroua Bus stop is smoothly ascending in the woods. The Sentier des Pives uses the same route.
From here at the spot with three Christian Crosses, a steeper trail will get us up to the Tracouet cable car station. The hike along the rim from Plan du Fou to Den de Nendaz may be not to everybody's liking: The walk along the rim with sheer drops on both sides may look scary for somebody "not used to sky walks".
As an alternative, there is a mountain track from Siviez by Grand Alou to Basso d'Alou and just crossing the rim to Balavaux, Tracouet: I started the tour at the Postauto stop. A track would start just about where the "Bisse the Saxon" route is strategische option nach pumping the woods, right above Strategische option nach pumping. Shortly after passing the Skilift area and sport center, a track leads to the gravel driveway.
This road strategische option nach pumping bring us up to Plan de Fou, it's the maintenance road for the Skilifts. There are some shortcuts as well, some marked, some not. There is also a dead end grass road that ends a few meter under the rim. From now on, we're walking in the sky, on a pretty narrow track.
Quite often some rock climbing is needed. Spectacular views are guaranteed. Just do either walk OR enjoy the view! At the peak on point a strategische option nach pumping wall has to be descended.
