Siviez used to be called Super Nendaz ...
The municipality of Nendaz includes 15 villages, which are located at different altitudes between the Rhône
plain (460 m above sea level) such as B. Aproz
and the highest village Siviez
at 1730 m above sea level. M. The most important village is Haute-Nendaz (German Ober-Neind). The highest point in the municipality is the summit of Rosablanche
at 3336 m above sea level. In contrast to Haute-Nendaz, the district of Aproz lies at the foot of the steep mountain slope in the Rhône Valley. A road from Basse-Nendaz (Eng. Unter-Neind) leads over the district of Fey
on a serpentine road to Aproz, where the Printze
from Siviez flows into the Rhône.
The summit of Dent de Nendaz
(2,463 m above sea level) rises south of the main settlement area of Haute-Nendaz / Nendaz Station. On its northern slope there is a material cable car to the Tracouet moated castle
(2250 m above sea level), which is an intermediate station of the pressure line (with a world record gradient of 1883 m) from Lac des Dix
to the Bieudron power station
(481 m above sea level).
From the district of Nendaz Station, which is directly connected to Haute-Nendaz, an orbit with 12-person gondolas runs up the steep Tracouet mountain spur (2200 m above sea level). Here a chair lift leads further south to Alp Prarion (1839 m above sea level). Between Tracouet and the Dent de Nendaz there is the mountain lake Lac Noir (2171 m above sea level), which is presumably fed by an underground glacier on the northern slope of the Dent de Nendaz.
Further south, about 700 m from Lac Noir, the Balavaux alpine farm is located on the alp of the same name, in the vicinity of which there are still isolated larches
with an age of up to about a thousand years. There are said to be around 250 trees of different ages here.
