Throughout the world there are dotted special places. Places where the ethereal veil that hangs between this world and Otherworld is that thin that it can be easily traversed, especially by those whose senses are developed.

These places, unsuprisingly, are known as ‘Thin Places’ and Cader Idris is one of them. She is also known as ‘Dragon Mountain’ and ‘The Gateway to the Otherworld’.

The Otherworld (Annwn) is home to ‘Y Tylwyth Teg’ (the Faer Folk) and their King Gwyn ap Nudd is leader of the wild hunt. It is also the abode of Elementals (nature spirits) and the home of the ancestors (in this area the Ordovices).

The Ordovices were an indigenous British tribe before and into the Roman period whose territory covered much of Mid-Wales and across into England.

The camping grounds are at the base of Cader (the hunting grounds of Gwyn ap Nudd) where the energies of mountain, river & Estuary combine. Above the camping grounds is the Cregennan plateau and lakes.

The Cregennan area was a major focus of funerary and ritual activity for the Ordovices (pictures surrounding) – a complex that would have been a focal point for a wide area & includes a communal bronze-age cemetery (Hafod Dywyll, Islaw’r Dref cairns).

In Welsh tales & legends Annwn (pronounced ah-noon) is described as a classical Celtic Otherworld Paradise – an ‘un-world’ – a mirror image of the place that we call home. It is the abode of the Gods and Goddesses and home to the Tylwyth Teg, the Faer Folk.
