Nendaz-Barrage de Cleuson Bike

With its spectacular views and turquoise waters the Cleuson Dam makes an excellent hiking destination.
The path between Nendaz and Siviez passes mainly through forest land. As you pass by the «Mayen de Sofleu» (mountain chalets) admire the magnificent view over the Alps and the Rhone Valley.

When you arrive at the car park in Siviez, follow the right bank of the Printse river (as it flows). The tarmac road then turns into a gravel track leading to the foot of the dam. A couple of hairpin bends and a short tunnel allow you to reach the dam wall 87 metres higher. On foot you can then cross the dam wall and admire the charming St Barthélémy chapel.

Hints

Tours with an e-mountain bike
The tourism organisations had these routes registered specifically as e-mountain bike routes. Technically, they are not too difficult, no passages where the bike has to be carried, short sections where it needs to be pushed, and doable with one battery charge (max. 1000 -1200 m altitude difference). Details about e-mountain biking are available at
www.nendaz.ch
