Pen Pumlumon Fawr

Plynlimon (Pumlumon), meaning Five Peaks, stands at a height of 752 m (2,467 ft). It is the highest point of the Cambrian Mountains and also the highest point in Mid Wales. The massif dominates the northern area of the county of Ceredigion. 

The peaks that make up the mountain are: Pen Pumlumon Arwystli, Y Garn, Pen Pumlumon Llygad-bychan, and Pumlumon Fach. It is also home to the largest watershed in Wales and the source of the longest river in the UK, the 220-mile River Severn, as well as the origin of the Rheidol and Wye.  Folklore states that a sleeping giant even lays beneath Plynlimon.
