Bisse d'Ayent

An exceptional circuit between Les Mayens d’Arbaz summer pastures and Rawyl Dam.

Description  

Built in 1442, the Ayent Bisse is fed by the Lienne. It runs through a varied landscape of ancient mayen stone and wood dwellings, mountain pastures and forest.  It irrigates the meadows and vineyards of Ayent and Grimisuat by a traditional system or sprinklers and finishes its course in the Revouire lake.  Examples of ancient techniques have been reconstructed along its course.

 

A superb itinerary but not recommended for those with no head for heights! 

Itineraries

Rawyl Dam

From the Rawyl Dam, take the path that goes down into the Liène valley from the dam restaurant and follow the trail by the bisse until Les Mayens d’Arbaz summer pastures. The first part of the walk is a steep climb and  not recommended for people with no head for heights or young children. 

 

 

Anzère

From Anzère you have the possibility of starting the walk by the bisse at the tennis courts. As the bisse is a little below, follow the arrows for the vita circuit in the forest. You will come to a dirt track that will take you to the signposts for walkers. All you need to do is follow the right path! The last part of the walk is a steep climb and not recommended for people with no head for heights or young children. 

 

 

Long Lake d'Arbaz

The third possibility is to start the bisse walk at the Restaurant du Lac in Arbaz, consequently on the Rawyl Dam path but taking it in the opposite direction (see above). The last part of the walk is very steep and is not recommended for people with no head for heights or young children.
