Departing from Nendaz Tourisme, cross the resort following the route des Ecluses. At the end of this road, continue on to the chemin de la Fragnière and continue uphill through the residential area of the same name.

When you reach the forest, follow the road to La Péroua. About 300 metres after the forestry commission offices, turn right following the pink signposts towards Prachavio. Here you can discover the pretty mid-mountain chalets facing the Haut-de-Cry and the Bernese Alps.

Begin the return route by following the Chemin de Rairettes and passing by the pretty chapel of the same name. After a last look at the town of Sion, return to your starting point by taking the route des Clèves.
