Trip to the top of England highest Mountain – Scafell Pike

After months of waiting for the right opportunity to travel to the Lake District AGAIN to attempt this, I have made it to the top. Solo but pretty happy with the effort. Here are some amazing views on the way to the top of Scafell Pike and back to Seathwaite.

It took me 6 hours 30 min including going off the track to take some nice pictures, and overall the walk added up to 11.45 miles from Seathwaite and back.

Weather was not too bad, but as I got to the top the rain decided to make it hard for walking on rocks, especially on the bits where there is no actual path to follow just rock piles as markers of the way.

I would say this is definitely a nice and easy walk, and at some point challenging if you don’t do much mountain walking regularly. My legs were absolutely fine for another day of hiking and a 4 hour drive back home.  Next time I might attempt this on a harder but hopefully faster rout.

My next challenge is hopefully Bed Nevis in Scotland and after that loads plans for more walking in Scotland, the Alps and Carpathian Mountains (part of Polish mountains) in further future.

Greetings my dear reader. My name is Natalia and I am a 28-year-old Marketing with Advertising graduate from around the Midlands in England. I love to travel and do loads of road trips, but above everything, I love climbing adventures with my climbing buddies. With this blog, I would like to be able to note down my thoughts and share my adventures I can look back at in years’ time with a smile on my face. I am also on a search for more exciting adventures and self-development. Since I absolutely adore natural world I also want to develop my knowledge and skills to reduce as much waste as I can that is bad for the environment. I like feedback and others input so I always want to hear other people’s experiences and ideas.
