The Creux du Van is a natural rocky cirque of approximately 1,400 metres of width and 150 metres of depth on the north side of Le Soliat. It is located in the Val de Travers district, in the Swiss canton of Neuchâtel. A very well known, amphitheatre-shaped natural attraction of the area, it is located at the heart of a nature reservation area of 15.5 km².
It’s over a year ago when I started to join in group camping and hiking hence enjoying the natural beauties of Switzerland. One of my earliest stints would be the visit to Creux du Van in Neuchâtel. We liked the excursion so much that a few weeks after our first we went up again, taking a different route nonetheless. In our second trip, I tagged a few more friends with me.
