Geology and glaciology centre

Les Haudères

Two new features in the Centre's permanent exhibition

Geomorphology sector :

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 landslides in the valley, especially during periods of heatwaves and snow melt?

Soapstone sector:

Did you know that this "soft" stone that resists fire well was also used to make cooking pots and irons?
