Start the walk on the left bank of the dam by crossing the wall of the dam and then following the path that runs along the dam. Arriving at the bottom of the dam, before descending, do not miss to discover the impressive mountain torrent which gushes out in the middle of the rock wall. Once you are at the foot of the dam, you have many places to organise a picnic or a barbecue. For the return, follow the “tour du lac” route which joins the footbridge and runs along the Bisse de Sion.
