Creux du Van, Gorgier, Switzerland

The Creux du Van is a natural rocky cirque approximately 1,400 metres wide and 150 metres deep, on the north side of Le Soliat.[1] 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.

The rocky amphitheatre of the Creux du Van is undoubtedly one of the scenic highlights of the whole sweep of the Jura. 160 m high and about two kilometres long, the chain of rocks forms the shape of a horseshoe. But the fantastic views of the Creux du Van have to be earned!
