Der Sanetschpass /Col du Sénin (2252 müM) liegt als Alpenpass vollständig im Kanton Wallis. Die heute befahrbare Strasse wurde ursprünglich für den Bau des Stausees errichtet. Oben auf dem Pass stehst du mitten in der Bergwelt der Diablerets im Osten und der Karrenfelder des zurückgewichenen Tsanfleurongletschers.
Nach dem Pass führt die Strasse noch etwas weiter, vorbei am Lac de Sénin bis zur Bergstation einer Bahn, welche nach Gsteig im Berner Oberland führt.
Achtung! Sackgasse!
Gesamtlänge hin und zurück ab Conthey/Pont de la Morge beträgt 68km. Die Strasse ist gut ausgebaut, die letzen paar hundert Meter sind ungeteert.

Sanetsch pass / Col du Sénin (2252 m) is a dead end road. It is pretty good to drive up to the top of the pass where you will enjoy the scenery of the nearby Diablerets mountains in east and the clint having left behind after the glacier of Tsanfleuron melted back more and more.
Than the road goes on. It follows the lake and ends at the station of a telecabine. You'll get tastful raclette in the nearby alpine dairy.
The complet length to drive up from Conthey/Pont de la Morge and back again is 68km. Only the last couple of hundred meters is unpaved dirt road.
