The Elan Valley, in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains, is one of Wales' most scenic regions. It is famous for its birdlife, especially birds of prey such as the Red Kite, which find refuge in the wooded valleys and mountains outcrops. A two day walk here gives you the chance to enjoy the region in the peace of dawn and dusk, and also provides the best chance to spot birds. But no camping is allowed on the estate, which is owned by Welsh Water, so you will need to head out for a wild camp.
