    Setting out from the trailhead, the Bisse du Tsittoret Hike will take you upstream from Vermala to get your muscles working! Enjoy the scenic views of the surrounding mountains and make sure to stop at the Colombire hamlet, where you will discover how life was organized in the mayen, a building typical to the Valais region that served as accommodation for shepherds who brought their flocks up to spend summer in the alpine pastures.
