Malverns

The Malvern Hills have been described as a mountain range in miniature; the eight mile ridge contains some of the oldest rocks in Britain and their craggy outline is reminiscent of the uplands further west into Wales. A walk in the Hills is strenuous enough that Mallory walked here in preparation for his ascent of Everest. Today you can enjoy over 3000 acres of open countryside climbing to the highest point at Worcestershire Beacon or relax whilst quietly rambling along the wooded slopes.

The Malvern Hills are a range of hills in the English counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and a small area of northern Gloucestershire, dominating the surrounding countryside and the towns and villages of the district of Malvern. The highest summit of the hills affords a panorama of the Severn valley with the hills of Herefordshire and the Welsh mountains, parts of thirteen counties, the Bristol Channel, and the cathedrals of Worcester, Gloucester and Hereford.

They are known for their spring water – initially made famous by the region's many holy wells, and later through the development of the 19th century spa town of Great Malvern, a process which culminated in the production of the modern bottled drinking water.[1]

What Others Said...

Eileen Mc Kenzie Nepal October 2014 I wouldn't change this trip I enjoyed every aspect of it. The worst thing (if I had to pick on something) was about group dynamics there was one difficult member in the group but this is not a criticism of the holiday as I feel staff and group members did everything possible to make this right. The best part? There were so many highlights: the flight to Lukkla; reaching base camp; observing village life; shopping in Katmandu! But it's the people involved who made it truly special Jill, our Nepalese guides and porters, Tulsi, the lodge owners who looked after is so well, and my fellow trekkers some of whom have become firm friends. Jill always goes the extra mile to look after the group I felt that she made every effort to ensure the safety, well being, comfort, and enjoyment of the group at all times. Her sensitivity to local culture was at the forefront of everything we did, and I loved the opportunities we had to learn the language and observe local village life.
