Brecon Beacon – South Wales
The well known Pen-Y-Fan walk tackles the highest mountain in South Wales and Southern Britain. Marking the impressive peak of 886m, is the Bronze Age Burial Cairn, which similarly signifies the best viewing spot, with sensational scenery. The entire walk from start to finish is a remarkable 7 ½ miles (12km), taking between 3-4 hours to complete.
For a walk of this length, it is best to be prepared with all the essentials. At The Hut we’d suggest loading up this ShoSho medium backpack with the day’s necessities including extra layers, food, walking accessories and lots of water.
