The Grand Bisse d’Ayent – for experienced hikers
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. Restaurants are available in Anzère.
