Grand Bisse de Vex

It is popular with summer visitors who like to follow its gentle course, especially the section between the resort of Veysonnaz and les Mayens-de-Sion. Even during heat waves, the air here is pleasantly cool thanks to the shelter provided by the trees. The forest consists of conifers, mainly larches, whose fallen needles form a thick and soft carpet on the trails.
