In the first meadow, the Tsalan d'Arbaz, there is a restaurant serving various dishes and cold drinks. Next, the hike takes you to the Duez Alpine meadow, and then the Serin meadow.

The circular hike comes to an end with a gentle descent along the Bisse de Sion trail, which boasts a panoramic view over the Valais peaks.
