1) The mountain ranges are high in south west and western north west .
2) Switzerland is situated between two mountains ranges . The jura mountains are spread from western northwest to southwest while the alps are in south all along making a v figure or v the symbol of victory.
3) Plateau in western northwest and northwest.
4) The rhine river starting in the alps flows towards north sea thereby making the land sloped towards north . Thus the land of Switzerland is sloped down from south to north making the land high in south and low in northern north east , eastern northeast and north east in the shape of V . Thus the land in east became low and furtile .
