Les Haudères

Geomorphology is the study of landforms and their evolution. The main processes active in mountain environments are very active in the Val d'Hérens. This represents a real heritage for the valley.

Did you know that in recent years, climate change has led to an increase in boulder falls and rockfalls in the valley, especially during periods of heatwave and snowmelt?

Soapstone sector:

Did you know that this "soft", fire-resistant stone was also used to make cooking pots and irons?
