Emosson Dam and Lake in Switzerland (Barrage et Lac, Suisse Valais)

The Emosson dam and lake was the perfect place in the Valais alpine mountains  in Switzerland to make a day hike session with our good friend coming to visit us! It’s next to Martigny, in the col de la Forclaz region, on the road to Chamonix (France). We had a marvellous day that we will remember for long, as the weather was nice, the place was simply splendid and very nice and adequate for making lot of nice landscape photos. So beautiful that she painted live some of the most beautiful locations during the walk! The dam is actually quite impressive, and the lake behind is very quiet with a specific blue turquoise color tone. The mountain around are slpendid and you have a view on the Mont-Blanc chain. We had a walk to reach the second dam of Emosson (old lake) which is under repair at the moment, so the road was closed and we had to hike, in total 12km. Splendid view on the full domain of Emosson, which produces electricity for the CFF/SBB (Swiss Railway company) and also for France. We reached it by using the funicular of Emosson, which you take at village of Chatelard: this is the steepest 2-cabin funicular in the world with 87% slope gradient. This is so impressive and a must do if you pass by Emosson region (we did the way back by legs and it was very beautiful path)! The dam is at 1’930m altitude, and in early September it starts to be a bit fresh, but full of blueberries all over the place, which for sure girls can’t resist!

All photos were shot with Canon EOS 5D MKII and Canon 16-35mm 2.8 L USM II lens, all of them treated with Adobe Lightroom 4.1. Here are few old photos of the Emosson dam in May with ice.
