Bisse du Ro


Built in the fourteenth century and entirely piped in the middle of the twentieth century, this bisse was once called the Bisse d’Amont (up river).  There are explanatory educational panels explaining the social organisation and the irrigation rules along the trail. 


Total length : 6 km.

Altitude : Between 1450 and 1750 metres.

Route time : Approximately 2 to 3 hours without the return trip. 

Location : Betwen Crans-Montana  and the Tzeusier Dam to the right of the Rhône

Difficulty : The trail is spectacular and, although quite safe, passes by vertiginous cliffs and is not suitable for those suffering from a fear of heights. In the middle of the route, a spectacular suspension bridge adorns the route.
