Aerial photo (1949)

Isérables covers an area of ​​1532 hectares between the Rhône plain ( 460  m above sea level ) and the Pointe des Champs Ferret as the highest point in the municipality at 2742  m above sea level. M. The place itself is around 1100  m above sea level. M. The neighboring municipalities of Isérables are in the northeast, east and southeast Nendaz and in the southwest, west and northwest Riddes .


The oldest mention comes from a purchase agreement from 1227. The municipality was granted independence on March 13, 1798. Due to the topographical location on a steep slope, the inhabitants lived isolated and de facto independent for a long time . This only changed with the construction of the Riddes – Isérables cable car (1942) and a road in the mid-1970s.
