Amenities: 2 picnic tables are located shortly before the Sex cellar and another shortly after the parking lot, at the start of the hike. On the other hand, no less than 6 benches mark out the course.


Very pretty bisse whose route begins shortly after the Barzettes -Violettes car park. For my part, I took the road which goes up to the hamlet of Plumachit and I parked shortly before it. Where the footpath coming from the Barzettes-violettes car park meets the road leading to Plumachit (to view the starting point and the car park, click on the "Map" button, you will be redirected to the swisstopo site with interactive map ).

Indeed, on the narrow road which leads to it, you will find on the left, a small parking lot (see Photo 01)

The first three kilometers are uphill, without great difficulty or notorious danger. Subsequently, it is almost completely flat. Possibility to eat at the Sex bar. Note that as the name suggests, there is a cheese cellar; therefore, possibility of buying cheese and serac.

During this hike, I confined myself to reaching the cave of the Sex by the bisse. Note that it is possible to continue along the bisse until the water intake in the Tièche torrent and to make the loop through the Tièche hut (refreshment bar). If you decide to join the latter, you can join the bisse downstream from the Sex cellar.
