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.

Gelmerbahn – steeply up to the Gelmersee lake

The Gelmer cable car with its 106% gradient is Europe's steepest cable car. The ride in the open carriages takes one up to Lake Gelmer, which is situated at an altitude of 1,860 meters above sea level. The region where the reservoir is located is the starting point for hikes and mountain tours.

Those in seek of a thrilling ride find one here! A monstrous climb of maximum 106 percent undisputably makes this funicular railway the steepest in Europe.
