O que você fará
We will meet at the starting point just 15 km from Killarney town. Be prepared for a steep climb right after the start. From the first top, you'll have a magnificent view over the valley that we will cross to reach the famous Paps of Anu mountains. There are no houses here except for the ruins of the cottages that have been abandoned ages ago. First stop is the wild mountain creek that flows into the river Flesk. Rapids and cascading waterfalls cut through the landscape. Next up in a bend of the creek is an abandoned village. Enjoy the same views the people had ages ago, and be astounded that they have left a beautiful place like this. As the rugged road takes up hight again you will see the fields where turf for heating and cooking was harvested aeons ago. The road continues along round enclosures and a hidden valley with mountain streams and small waterfalls. After about an hour and a half, we arrive at the foot of the Western Pap mountain. We will climb the 700 m peak where we enjoy the amazing views over the forests and lakes of Cork and Kerry before we return to the parking where we started.

I am living on a homestead in the mountains near the Co. Kerry and Co. Cork border. It's an area of pristine but undeveloped and rugged natural beauty. I have undertaken numerous hikes and walk through the valleys and over mountain tops. It's an unknown gem, the experience will make you feel like an insider who has seen something nobody has. I can tell you a lot about the history and mythology of the place, who lived there and why it was abandoned. Having studied Celtic myths and spirituality the stories and experience are on a different level altogether.

Onde você estará
Wild mountain stream with rapids and cascading waterfalls that dug in deep into the rocky bottom. A settlement of a dozen cottages, farms and huts that had been abandoned about 1000 years ago. Climbing the Paps of Anu that can only be reached after a long walk. The whole experience is unique because no tourists ever visit this valley because it is not in any travel guide.

This walk is for all experience levels but requires a good physical condition. Be prepared for some climbing. If you are short of breath easily you might consider not doing this.
