The 2468ft Pumlumon Fawr is one of the best places to see the sunset in the Cambrian Mountains. Come prepared for the diminishing light and the promise of a clear sky. The dark skies of the Cambrian Mountains will reveal the amazing night sky in all its glory as the sun disappears over the western horizon over Ceredigion’s Cardigan Bay.
Appropriate clothing and footwear essential as are headtorches with new batteries. Please also bing spare batteries and a spare torch too. Please bring food and drink too. We aim to return to a local inn afterwards. This free event requires prior registration via the Eventbrite website.
This project has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
