WHAT TO KNOW!
The Belevedere Via Ferrata just below the hill top village of Nax, above the city of Sion and overlooking the Rhone valley is a wonderful beginner’s via ferrata.
A traditional climb up, just over 200m of granite cliff with 3 good rest points on the way up, the course is fair and fun to complete.
One tricky move from the first monkey bridge onto a climb is pretty much the most difficult moment. The rest of the course is nicely designed with good foot and hand holds and minimal contact with the rock. This via ferrata has wonderful views to the valley below along its length and is a really enjoyable course which is perfect for bringing new people to our wonderful adventures!
Once you reach the top, enjoy the view and make your way back down the path to the carpark again.
