Route


Map


The route along the Vieux Bisse starts at the departure point of the Savoleyres telecabine in the village of La Tzoumaz. The path first follows the bisse by going up its course in a chalet area for about 500 metres. It then enters the forest before returning through the cottage to reach the start of the telecabine.

The “Vieux Bisse” should not be confused with the “Bisse Vieux” in Nendaz. It is unfortunately not well maintained and not always in water. It is obviously not one of the most beautiful bisse in French-speaking Switzerland but it allows you to take a short and esay walk through the Tzoumaz.
