Snowdon

Mount Snowdon is situated in the Snowdonia National Park, covering an area of 840 square miles. The area around Snowdon is very mountainous. The views all around the region are good and there are some picturesque villages.

The main recommended route is situated in the pass of Llanberis where it meets with Pen-y-Pass. There is a youth hostel here and a mountain rescue post. There are 2 starts, either the Pyg Track or the Miners Track.

The town of Llanberis is 6 miles away on the shore of Llyn Padarn or Llanberis Lake. Along the shore of this lake is a steam railway, which is open to visitors. Probably the most famous tourist attraction in this area is the Snowdon Mountain Railway. This line starts in Llanberis and continues to the summit of Snowdon. 

On the summit there is a café and gift shop, where thirsty walkers can quench their thirst and purchase souvenirs. Some walkers prefer to travel one way on the railway and the other on foot.
