The 3 Peaks Challenge involves climbing the 3 highest peaks in England, Scotland and Wales Within 24 Hours.

 

Snowdon is usually the final peak of the National Three Peaks Challenge

The three mountains are:

 

Snowdon, in Wales (1085m)

Scafell Pike, in England (978m)

Ben Nevis, in Scotland (1345m)

A popular misconception is that the three mountains that form the challenge are the three tallest on the British mainland. Rather, they are the tallest mountains within each representative country: Scafell Pike is the tallest in England; Snowdon, the tallest in Wales and Ben Nevis the tallest in Scotland — over one hundred peaks in Scotland are higher than Scafell Pike, and 56 higher than Snowdon.
