Southern Britain’s 3 Highest Summits (Brecon Beacons)
7 people attending
8 places left
The Brecon Beacons are a range of Old Red Sandstone peaks, which form the central section of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Quite a lot of ascent (800 metres) as we take in the three highest summits in Southern Britain, will make this a challenging walk. However if the weather is kind we will have stunning views of both the mountains and the spurs and valleys radiating out from them.
What to bring
Please come prepared for all eventualities, there is a unique microclimate in this region and it can bring all 4 seasons in one day. Please bring sun cream and a waterproof, good walking boots [trainers will not be appropriate for the terrain] and whatever else you feel you will need for hot / sunny / rainy / windy conditions. Please remember any medications you may require too.
Food & drink
Once we are in the hills there are no opportunities to buy anything, so please bring enough food and drink. This is a very long walk, you will need at least 3 litres of water if it is a hot day and probably even if it is not.
