To reach the bisse de Saxon, follow the small track that runs up opposite the restaurant "Les Bergers" in Siviez.

Follow it for a few minutes and then turn right onto the Bisse de Saxon. Here you are on the longest bisse in the Valais! In the heart of the forest, discover the Bourlâ cabin where, in the past, the guardians of the bisse ensured its smooth running.

Continue your journey to the mysterious 'Lapey de Dzarjonne', the 'Dzerjonna rock field'. Where do all these stones come from? What is the mystery of this place? An information panel allows you to learn more about a legend from the Nendaz about this site. Take the opportunity to learn a few words of Nendaz dialect!

Continue on to the magnificent Pra da Dzeu clearing with its breathtaking view of the Bernese Alps.

From there, leave the bisse and start your descent by following the path passing by the charming Gouille d'Ouché then continue on down to Haute-Nendaz.
