Pumlumon Fach is a subsidiary top of Plynlimon on its high massif, a part of the Cambrian Mountains. Pumlumon Fach (which name means “Little Plynlimon”) rises to 2,192 feet in Cardiganshire. The summit is on small ridge heading north-west from the summit of Plynlimon itself (Pen Pumlumon Fawr).

The summit of Pumlumon Fach is marked by small cairn, and overlooks the Nant-y-moch Reservoir to the north and Llyn Llygad Rheidiol to the east.

The views from the top also include the smaller summits of Drosgol (1,804 feet) and Banc Llechwedd-mawr (1,837 feet) and Cwm Hyddgen, a hide-out of Owain Glyndŵr and his army in those troubled times.[1]
