Tracouet - Siviez - Bisse de Saxon - Haute-Nendaz

From the top of the Tracouet gondola, walk towards Siviez via the Dent de Nendaz and Basso d'Alou, with its breathtaking panoramic view points. Return to Haute-Nendaz via the Bisse de Saxon.

After a short gondola ride from Haute-Nendaz to Tracouet, follow the path which runs along the right hand side of the 'lac Noir' (lake). The climb up to the Dent de Nendaz is via a mountain path. When you reach 2461 m, next to the cross, take the time to admire the view over the lake and surrounding mountains. The next part of the hike is a slight downhill passage along a steep mountain ridge before going back uphill until you reach the Pointe de Balavaux going on to then  reach the  col du Basso D’Alou (pass). Follow this renowned passage (relatively technical and aerial) until you reach the heights of  Siviez. Begin your descent to join the bisse de Saxon, which you follow past the  Bourla cabina all the way back to Haute-Nendaz.

Departure point the yellow sign opposite the arrival place of the cable car at Tracouet.
