Cadair Idris is a small range of mountains, well worth a look by any active hiker. The climb is relentless but you are rewarded with some cracking views, personally i prefer these views compared to some of the 3000s.

Cader Idris is not the very highest mountain, at 892 meters high - but it starts from near sea level, and it offers a truly breathtaking panorama of the southern part of Snowdonia. The highest peak of the Cader Idris ridge is called Pen-y-Gader; you can find a small shelter near the highest point. On both sides of the ridge are beautiful lakes, each surrounded by steep rock cliffs. You can swim in them, although you need a cast-iron constitution to do so!

Complex and striking, Cadair Idris is the Snowdon of southern Snowdonia: a honeypot mountain renowned for its imperious cliffs, enticing ridges and pretty tarns. It is a peak shrouded in myth. Its name, meaning ‘Chair of Idris’, derives from the Welsh legend of a giant who created a mountainous seat for stargazing.
