#4 of 10 in Things to do in Nendaz
Mont Fort is a mountain of the Pennine Alps, located near Verbier in the Swiss canton of Valais. It lies on the range between the valleys of Bagnes and Nendaz, north of the Rosablanche. With a height of 3,328 metres above sea level, Mont Fort is the highest summit north of the Col de Louvie (2,921 m).Mont Fort is surrounded by several glaciers, the largest being the Glacier de Tortin, on its northwestern side. The second largest is the Glacier du Mont Fort, located on its northeastern side. On its eastern side lies the lower summit Petit Mont Fort (3,135 m). The Glacier du Petit Mont Fort lies between the two summits. There are no glaciers on the south side of the mountain. A small lake named Lac du Petit Mont Fort (2,764 m) lies on the south flank.The summit of Mont Fort is easily accessible by cable car from the heights of Verbier or Nendaz. The cable cars from the two valleys converge at the intermediate station (2,894 m) north of the Col des Gentianes, the upper section reaching a height of 3,308 metres. In the winter and early spring season, the mountain, including the Glacier de Tortin, is the culminating point of the 4 Vallées ski area, accessible by the "Mont-Fort" cable car. There is one ski slope leading down from the mountain's peak - which then leads down to the Col des Gentianes, where a restaurant and two cable cars leading down to Verbier and Siviez (Haute-Nendaz) are situated.AccessibilityAs above, the mountain is accessible from the '4 Vallées' ski area, made up of La Tzoumaz, Verbier, Haute-Nendaz, Veysonnaz and Thyon, each interconnected with ski lifts, managed by each ski resort's separate lift operators . Mont-Fort lies between the Verbier and Nendaz .

    This is a must visit if you visit Switzerland in summer. From Nendaz take towards Siviez, there you will reach a large car park where a chairlift part first part of the journey. Many riders are left at this point to make any of the many routes that depart from this point. After a cable car takes you to the top of Mont Fort. It is impressive when you get there. The views are amazing from any point of the platform. There is a small cafe-restaurant, but the prices are somewhat inflated. I advise that you upload to the cross that there are more above, 5-minute descent but the views there are more spectacular if possible. The Silviez up to Mont Fort fare is €35 roundtrip.

    Ако сте смештени у Nendaz, треба вам око два сата да стигнете на овај врх. Вреди обићи овај врх само ако је време сунчано јер ако није, или х+гондола не ради или не можете уживати у прелепом погледу н...  more »
