Bisse de Riederi


Built in the first half of the fourteenth century, this bisse was still active until the 1940s. It is now completely abandoned. A spectacular trail crossing sheer vertiginous drops follows the old path of the bisse from Blatten (bei Naters) to Ried-Mörel. This trail can be followed in both directions but we advise beginning in Blatten.


Total length : Approximately 8 km from Blatten.

Altitude : Between 1300 and 1200 metres.

Route time : Approximately 3 hours. 

Location :  To the right of the Rhône, above Naters, Bitsch and Mörel. 

Difficulty : Not suitable for those suffering from vertigo. Can not go to with children in infancy

Ordinance Survey map 1 : 50'000  no. 274 T Viège (Visp).

Best period : June to October.

This abandoned bisse carries water for the final third towards Ried - Mörel.
