The Lake District contains some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. With hundreds of fells which create a vast terrain of rugged mountains. Since time began the landscape here has provided inspiration to poets such as William Wordsworth & Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Even the Roman Empire made home just below the picture shown here!
Day 1: Begins in the delightful and little visited Duddon valley, a truly unspoilt area of Lakeland. We find an entertaining route to the summit of Harter Fell before heading over the wild moorland of Ulpha Fell and onto Great Whinscale, Crook Crag, The Pike & Green Crag, where we find further entertainment and fabulous views. Our return takes us through the ever changing Dunnerdale forest and back to the babbling river Duddon.
Day 2: Starting at the famous landmark of The Old Dungeon Ghyll, we take the steep path up Rossett Gill to Angle Tarn, forge a way on to Esk Hause where we can enjoy some rest, shelter & views. We then descend towards the Great Moss, a real wilderness, before making an interesting scramble via a fine ridge to Ill Crag summit. We return easily to Esk Hause, and from here either walk straight back to the Langdale valley, or take in the summits of Esk Pike & Bowfell (recommended) before returning to the valley.
