Pralong is a little hamlet at the end of the Val d'Hérens, tucked away at the foot of the Grande-Dixence dam at an altitude of 1'600m.

It is a magical place that has managed not to change over the years.

The farmers till put their little black cows out to pasture in fields surrounded by pines and larches.

And, of course, a river runs through the middle... the Dixence.
