Combe Grède

A huge crevice vertically divides the ridge over St-Imier into two parts – the Combe Grède. The craggy cliff faces are inhabited by chamois and marmots, even pellegrine falcons and wood grouse can be seen. The 14-km-long and steep walk from Villeret through the Combe Grède direct to the Chasseral is very demanding, takes a good 6 hours and should only be undertaken by experienced hikers. The start and end point can be reached using public transportation.

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.
