Vallon de Réchy: The Hidden Valley

A pristine, hidden valley between Val d'Hérens and Val d'Anniviers. Many writers have received their inspiration here. The brook seeks its own course without interference from man-made impediments. The "Bec de Bosson" mountain peak watches over the valley and its four villages: Nax, Saint-Martin, Vercorin and Grimentz. In autumn, the rutting of stags can be heard across the expanses of the "Ar du Tsan" plain.

The Val de Réchy, which is located to the south of Sierre, is an untamed natural valley. Its unspoiled state, natural streams, mountain lakes and blanket mires with their interesting flora make Val de Réchy a very worthwhile hiking destination.
