Snowdon – Yr Wyddfa. Wales’ highest mountain dominates the skyline of North West Wales at 1,085 metres (3,560 feet) peak. There are six recommended paths up the mountain of varying difficulty, but all are classed as ‘hard, strenuous walks’ and you should allow at least 6 – 8 hours to get there and back. Alternatively you can get the train up! Whichever route you choose you will enjoy glorious views of lakes, and waterfalls and Snowdonia National Park. The journey from Pentrehobyn takes about an hour and a half by car.
