The dramatic Langdale Pikes can be found at the head of the Langdale Valley and can often be seen from many miles away overlooking the vale. Found here at over 2300 feet is the highest peak out of the Langdale Pikes known as `Pike of Stickle' with the second main peak `Harrison Stickle'. Many different walking routes are available to do, with a variety of levels to suite all walkers.
The fells have a brilliant rugged look to them with rocky crags and shear rock faces which overlook you as you climb the peaks. Incredible photographs can be taken in the whole of this area during your walk allowing you to capture truly stunning shots of your holiday.
One of the most popular routes in this mountain range is from the New Dungeon Inn up past the spectacular Dungeon Ghyll waterfalls and on to the Stickle Tarn. Here you find fantastic scenery with the impressive rock formations and features seen all around you. For the walkers who prefer more of a lengthy walk, you can extend this popular route to just under seven miles as it goes round in a circular direction past Sergeant Man, Pavey Ark and back.
If you are an experienced walker and are looking for a challenging walk, you could try Bowfell which is one of the classic walks in the area and is a length of about eight miles. It can be combined with Crinkle Crags and Pike O'Blisco for the more advanced walker who would like a route which is a little more difficult and time consuming.
