The Beauty of Higger Tor at Sunrise in March

< Peak District Calendar

If you're a nature lover, there's nothing quite like experiencing the beauty of a new day breaking over the horizon. And one of the most breathtaking places to do so is Higger Tor, a peak in the Peak District National Park. 

What is Higger Tor?

Higger Tor is a hill located in the Peak District National Park. It stands at 1,384 feet (422 meters)  and is made up of gritstone rock. Higger Tor is popular with walkers, picnickers and climbers, who come to test their skills and enjoy the stunning views.

Why is Higger Tor So Beautiful?

Higger Tor offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding countryside, with stunning vistas stretching out for miles in every direction. From the top of the Tor, you can see the rolling hills of the Peak District, with their patchwork of fields, woodlands and edges. And during sunrise in March, the warm hues of the sun add a magical quality to the landscape, making it even more stunning.

What to Expect When Visiting Higger Tor at Sunrise in March

To make the most of your visit to Higger Tor, it's best to arrive before sunrise. The sky will still be dark, but the stars will be out in full force, creating a truly magical atmosphere. As the sun begins to rise, the sky will gradually change colors, from deep purples and blues to pinks and oranges.

As the sun begins to peak over the horizon, the landscape will be bathed in a warm glow, and the views will be absolutely breathtaking. You'll feel like you're on top of the world, with nothing but beauty stretching out as far as the eye can see.

If you're planning on visiting Higger Tor at sunrise in March, there are a few things you should bring along with you. First and foremost, you'll need warm clothing, as it can be quite chilly at that time of day. A good pair of hiking boots is also recommended, as the terrain can be rough and uneven.

You may also want to bring along a camera to capture the stunning views, and a tripod to keep it steady during long exposures. And don't forget to bring a bottle of water and a snack, as you may be up on Higger and may wander into Burbage or Stanage for several hours.

Safety Precautions

While Higger Tor is a beautiful place to visit, it's important to take proper safety precautions. The terrain can be rocky and uneven, and there are steep drops in some areas. Just remain aware.

It's also important to dress appropriately for the weather, as temperatures can be quite cold at that time of day. And if you're hiking alone, be sure to let someone know where you're going and when you expect to return.

Higger Tor is one of the most beautiful places to visit in the Peak District, especially during sunrise in March.
