    / The Cleuson dam
    Photo: Valais
Built between 1946 and 1951, Cleuson can hold 20 million cubic meters of water from the Printze and produce on average 70 million kw/h of power a year. It is a gravity dam standing 87m high and 420m wide at its widest point. Because of the breathtaking view and its turquoise waters, the Cleuson dam is an excellent place for an excursion. The trails are passable between 20 June and 30 September. Please check the weather and trail conditions before your hike, and be sure to use a map.
