The creations of gardens is an extremely popular art form in Japan. Indeed, Japanese gardens respect a precise design and include a number of elements (rocks, paths, water, plants, …) which are very carefully selected. Their layout within the garden is also meticulously elaborated. It is from this tradition that the magnificent natural site of the Japanese Garden in Nendaz got its name : in fact, a stream meanders down between rocks and mountain flowers. A true masterpiece designed by Mother Nature!
WHY IS IT WORTH THE DETOUR ?
This place emanates a feeling of well-being and serenity. The Japanese Garden is also particularly suitable for families, where a delicious picnic in the fresh air can be enjoyed by all. In addition to this, this beautiful place is accessible to everybody : for the more sporty among you, departing from Siviez offers you a longer hike, while, for those too impatient to discover this site, a quicker way via the Tortin chairlift is also available.
ADVICE FROM THE LOCALS
Keep this hike for a hot day. You will be happy to take advantage of the coolness of the water for a well-deserved break and why not even kick off those walking boots and enjoy a little paddle in your bare feet.
