Your cultural discovery of typical villages in the Haut-Plateau region starts in the valley, in the town of Sierre. You’ll then head to the village of Loc, via pretty minor roads.

From here, a rise of no less than 18km awaits you, exploring the villages of Chermignon-d’en-Bas, Lens and Icogne on the way. Take your time and enjoy a stop in a village café or on the banks of the lakes to admire the wonderful panoramic views, and to recharge your batteries! Just a few more bends and you’ll reach the highest point of this uphill ride: the resort of Crans-Montana, at 1,500m. 

 

A section on forest paths will lead you to Montana-Village, to finally return to Loc and Sierre.
