The hike starts from a car park near Edale Village, you should walk up to the National trust Information centre and from that point onwards your hike will start giving you the option to choose two routes: 1. Grindsbrook Booth leading to leading to Edale Moor and then up to Kinder Scout and come back via Jacobs ladder leading to Pennie’s way. 2. Upper Booth leading to Jacobs ladder to Kinder Low and then up to Kinder Scout/kinder Downfall and come back via Edale Moor. Whichever route you choose, there will be a certain amount of scrambling up and down, some quite steeps ascent and descent, ladder walk but with a view to cherish forever in your eyes. It is an exposed plateau and it could be windy, misty and very cold. Very very easy to get lost in case the clouds turns up and spoils the walk. 1. I choose a sunny day but it turned out to be a very windy day. My Cap flew away with the force of wind and at many points I felt I will be blown up by the wind force. So make sure you choose a sunny day with no winds or little breeze. The lady at National trust told us when we were leaving that wind above will be 5*wind that you are facing at the base. So that wind will definitely temper your progress and will make you much tired. 2. Carry a Map and Compass, if you don’t have one buy it and learnt to use it. Kinder scout trail is not well-marked and there are chances you will get lost on this plateau. On mountains you can never be dependant on weather forecast, so if it turns misty or clouds, these navigation skills will come handy. 3. Carry water bottle, sandwiches for those little breaks, thermals, cap, gloves, sunglasses, whistle, first aid kit. 4. A good walking boots, believe me you will fee blessed. I saw people walking up in their flipflops and without any jackets, I have no idea how they bear that climb. (NO, I am not weak Girl ) On they way you will encounter small waterfalls, kinder reservoir, cairns and amazingly shaped stones. It was an amazing day where I walked endlessly and still felt content. I am definitely going back to Peak District again and to explore other mountains of this valley.

Day 6 (Dublin): I arrived in Dublin via Aer Lingus from London Gatwick. The flight takes about an hour and you have to pay for everything on-board like water, light snacks etc., but otherwise the flight was okay. After landing I went through the immigration at Dublin airport and it was very smooth, no questions asked. Outside the airport, I waited at a near by church, which is a Paddywagon bus pick-up/drop-off point to/from their office. Their bus picked me up at 4:00 pm and dropped me off at my hotel, opposite their office, in Dublin.
