Randa

The village and its many hamlets was founded in 1290, but was first documented in 1305. Together with Täsch it belonged to the municipality of Naters until 1552, at which point it became part of the municipality of Visp.

The village and its many hamlets was founded in 1290, but was first documented in 1305. Together with Täsch it belonged to the municipality of Naters until 1552, at which point it became part of the municipality of Visp. The name Randa probably comes from the word "Rand" meaning border. The extended Baroque church, built in 1717, is a real gem.

The Irrigation Channels of Nendaz : The Historic Water Trail

Scorched by the sun and difficult to access, the steep Valais hillsides are often watered using the so-called "suonen", or irrigation channels. Dug into the ground, hanging from rocks or carved from them, they are a constant reminder of the farmers' struggle against drought. Today, picturesque hiking trails follow these historic water channels.

A wonderful waterworld: 100 kilometres of hiking trails run through the sun-drenched Nendaz region along these historic irrigation channels.
