    info

    Helvellyn is in the Lake District, the famous National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site in the North West of England. The mountain itself is part of the Helvellyn range of mountains, which are north of Ambleside and between Ullswater and Thirlmere lakes. Unlike other popular climbing mountains in the region, such as Scafell Pike - the highest point in England - Helvellyn is a little easier to access. You can start walking up Helvellyn from the surrounding villages of Grasmere, Glenridding or Patterdale, among other access points. The mountain has five ridges, so offers many different routes up to the peak.
