Another wild and solitary trek in the wilderness of the Elan Valley in mid Wales, using some fragments of our previous routes and some new seldom trodden territory in the heart of the region around the remote Llyn Gynon. Most of the route is on good tracks and paths, but the western arc around Llyn Gynon has short sections of very rough and rather wet pathless terrain.After weeks of unseasonally wet and stormy weather in May, we seized this 3-day slot of breezy but very warm sunny conditions, ideal for backpacking the vast spacious grasslands of the Elenydd where the song of the skylark fills the air almost constantly and red kites soar overhead and glide effortlessly into the distance.

As always, great trip report !
Thanks mate, a fine backpacking area.
Thanks a lot. The spacious views over empty rolling hills make a good occasional change from the mountainous regions.
As always a great write up Geoff
