The dam of Emosson, more than 180m high, is one of Switzerland’s most beautiful dam, the third in terms of size. It is more precisely located in the canton of Valais, very close to the French border that had to be modified to allow its construction. Built between 1967 and 1975, it is used to generate hydroelectric power by capturing water from two glaciers of the Mont Blanc.

It is possible to reach the dam by car. A cable car will take you down to the base of the dam. There is also a small restaurant that offers accommodation. You can find all their offers on their website.
