View from the top of Pen-y-Fan walk

Pen y Fan is the tallest and most popular peak in the Brecon Beacons. With breathtaking views from the top it's one of the most rewarding walks in Wales. Again there are several routes you can take, so you can spend anything from a couple of hours to all day walking depending on your plans.

A nice relaxing walk nearby is around the Usk Reservoir. There is plenty of wildlife to see including mountain ponies and red kites.
