The "bisses" are traditional irrigation channels which were built several centuries ago in order to bring precious glacier water to the cultivated land around Crans-Montana.
The alpine route connecting Braunwald to Lake Oberblegi and down to Schwanden leads hikers through the weird rock formations of the moranes of the Glaernisch Range. Indeed, the deep-blue lake itself was created by moranes that dammed the melting waters. Rushing mountain streams and beautiful alpine flowers round off the picture.
This year’s Handy-Safari hike, courtesy of the Coop magazine, again pledges fun, games and excitement for all the family in over 30 family destinations in Switzerland.
This 2.5-hour tour is like a walk through an open-air museum.
