The dam is iconic and colossal. It provides the opportunity for some extraordinary hikes in the surrounding area, such as walking all the way round the lake. A visit to the old tunnels, with an exhibition on the history of the valley, is also well worth while.

My favourite spot for road cycling training, amid the mountains and with very little traffic. My advice: take the summer road via Plampro (right-hand side of the valley).

A wild place: you really should get to know the track on the left side of the valley, by which you can get to Chanrion by bike. The meal at the hut gives you the chance to recharge your batteries for the return trip.
