See it on the new 100-franc note. Experience it first-hand!
Built in 1442, the Grand Bisse d’Ayent takes its water directly from the River Lienne, beneath the imposing wall of the Tseuzier dam. It serves as the traditional water supply for the meadows and vineyards of Ayent and Grimisuat and ends its journey in the Etang de Revouire. To reach your destination, you will start your hike on the wall of the Tseuzier dam, then descend to the Lienne Valley until you reach the intersection with the bisse. Here you will be able to admire remnants of the past and the staggering work of our ancestors.
Note: the bisse is a mountain path to a place called “La Forniri”. It is a spectacular route which is not recommended for those suffering from vertigo. Altitude: between 1,800 and 1,300 metres. Go with the flow from June until the end of September.
Start climbing and walk along the watercourse from Anzère to Crans-Montana, a route that follows the legendary Bisse du Ro irrigation canal. The route starts at Tseuzier Dam, and continues until it reaches Lake Grenon in Crans-Montana.
The hanging footbridge gives walkers a momentary rush of adrenaline, whilst being completely safe. Perched 70 m above the gorge, the footbridge measures 120 m in length.
