Points of Interest

1. Crêt du Midi

Ski station of Crêt du Midi. The lifts work during the summer period.
If you do not want to do the climb to Crêt du Midi, you can take the lift from Vercorin to this station.

2. Mont Major - 2374m

When departing from Crêt du Midi we'll pass this small mountaintop, from here you'll climb further to La Brinta.

3. La Brinta - 2660m

The path doesn't go to the top of La Brinta but rather just beneath it. Just look out from here on, a part with chains awaits you.

4. Col de la Brinta

You got passed the most dangerous part of the hike. It's good to rest here a bit before entering the Val de Réchy.

5. Le Pichioc

This is an amazing viewpoint over L'Ar du Tsan.
Beneath Le Pichioc runs a great waterfall of La Réche.

6. Chemin des Bisses - Bisse de Vercorin

From here you'll take the path of the Bisse. A Bisse is a small irrigation channel that ran from La Réche to Vercorin. It was restored to it's (almost) original state so you'll get a good view on how the irrigation worked in the beginning of the 20th century.
