The historic Water Route

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 hundred kilometers of hiking trails follow the historic water channels ("bisses") around the sun-drenched resort of Nendaz. This route starts from the village centre and continues along the "Bisse du Milieu" (Middle Channel) to Planchouet, with its water catchments. Return to the village via the "Bisse Vieux" (Old Channel).
