Bisse de Vercorin and Bisse de Ricard

The Bisse de Ricard (also named Bisse de Charogne) sources its water from the Navisence river, irrigating the Chalais hill and feeding smaller bisses downstream on the Rèche. The route of this bisse includes several steep sections. It provides an ideal way of accessing one of the last valleys in this canton which cannot be reached by automobile.
