After a day rich in activity, Inès meets you at the Alpage de Thyon. So it’s this long rectangular building, or small cow “rooms” are arranged along the length.
If you look at the landscape, you can observe all the emblematic peaks of the Val d’Hérens, the Dent Blanche (The Monstrous Coquette as Maupassant called it), the Maya and its square top, or the famous Matterhorn!”
In the evening, the time has come for the Hérens cows, emblematic breed of the region, to be milked. A milk rich in grass and alpine flowers that will confer a unique and tasty taste. But how is this treasure transformed? Georges the cheesemaker will explain all his know-how and you can admire a hundred cheeses in his cellar.
