Welsh Three Peaks Challenge

The Welsh Three Peaks Challenge, lesser known than the National or Yorkshire Challenges, takes in the three peaks of Wales: Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) in the North, Cadair Idris in mid-Wales, and Pen y Fan in the South.

The Welsh Three Peaks includes a total walking distance of 17 miles (27.4km) and an ascent of around 1500 metres (4920ft), usually in less than 24-hours.

While Snowdon is the highest peak in Wales, Cadair Idris and Pen y Fan are much lower, and are chosen for their position rather than height.
