Last time I did this hike was in Spring of last year: going to the Creux du Van. I hope that this makes also a great fall hike!!
The place Creux du Van is located in Kanton Neuchatel and is considered the Gran Canyon of Switzerland, which actually looks more of a big natural amphitheater to me.
The tour will be a hike of about 4 to 4.5 hours walking time, 740m going up and 740m going down, starting from and ending to Noiraigue. It is certainly not the most easiest hike, but it is very rewarding.
The train schedule is (yet to be confirmed):
Z?rich HB ab 09:04 ICN 1516
Neuch?tel an 10:32
Neuch?tel ab 10:40 R 4814 Regio
Noiraigue an 11:01
Please note that we will meet in Zh HB under the big weird angel at 8:45am. If you are running late and miss us, please go directly to the train and try to find us. If your coming from somewhere else, you can also meet us on the train or at the destination point at the given time.
For any matters, please don't hesitate to call me at[masked] 4480.
Recommended to bring along:
- sun/wind/rain protection (wind jacket,sun scream, glasses, etc)
- Hiking shoes (tennis shoes not recommended)
- Picknick (sandwich, leftover easter eggs, etc.)
- Water (at least 1 liter )
- Enthusiasm!VERY IMPORTANT:
I will organize a group ticket for the train, which provides everyone a good discount and avoids for everyone to hurry on a Sunday morning to buy a ticket. For this, I need to know by the latest Friday Noon the following,
a) how many people are really
coming, marked those who said "YES" and want to be included in the Groupticket, and
b) who has a Halb-tax, GA, or nothing (this also includes dogs).
So please update very quick your status on the meetup site and insert a comment with "Halbtax", "GA", "NONE" so that I can easily refer to. I will have to buy the tickets upfront, so please put only a "YES" if you are very sure that you will come, otherwise just put "Maybe" and buy your own ticket.
Last but not least, I hold the right to change/cancel the event in case of bad weather or lack of quorum. Please refer to the meetup website after 8pm the night before the event for any changes, or else, give me a call.
See you then!
