Route


Map


The route consists of a 4.5 km loop. It should be noted that the path unfortunately only follows the bisses in the forest on about 1/3 of the loop.

Description


The route starts at the parking lot of the Etang des Rochés by a paved road. First, follow the blue signs towards the Tsanpé bisse, which you can walk along for part of the way up the river.

The path runs along part of the Déjore bisse in the forest for a few hundred metres up to a paved road. It is then no longer possible to follow the bisse that flows into private homes. It is therefore necessary to follow the paved road towards the Etang des Rochés to complete the loop.

Before going back down to the Etang des Rochés, we come across the end of the famous Torrent-Neuf bisse which, like the Tsanpé and Déjore bisses, used to supply water to the upper Savièse.

Etang des Rochés


The “étang des Rochés” (pond of the Rocks) is a pretty pond at the beginning of the route and from where you can enjoy a view of the southern slope of the Rhône valley. It has the advantage of offering a very nice picnic area with a table under a cutlery and a barbecue.

Torrent-Neuf bisse


Savièse is known for its Torrent-Neuf or Savièse bisse, which is one of the most beautiful bisses in French-speaking Switzerland with its 4 suspended walkways and rocky walls.
