Itinéraire - Randonnée pédestre
Tour of the Mont - Rouge
Magnificent high altitude walk, passing by the Crête up to the summit of the Mont Rouge and return via the highest bisse in the Valais, the «ancien Bisse de Chervé».
The hike starts in Thyon 2000 where a panoramic path will lead you to the Mont-Rouge, suspended between the Val de Nendaz and the Val d'Hérémence. On one side the marchlands of Essertse and its ponds at the foot of the imposing Grande Dixence dam, and on the other the grazing pastures of Combyre-Meina overlooking the vallon de la Printze and the bottom of the Rhone Valley.
The Mont-Rouge can be recognised by its cross, watching quietly over our pastures, The spot is simply wonderful and so welcoming you just want to sit and enjoy a well earned rest.
A panoramic information panel helps you to identify the surrounding summits.
The way back to Thyon is via the «ancien bisse de Chervé», the highest in the region, now unused. The finish walk is on a wide and easy path along the mountainside, shaded by pine and larch forests. Stop and admire the wonderful colours in the rockslides of Combyre.
