The Snowdon trek in the heart of Snowdonia, North Wales comprises breathtaking, rugged scenery and rewarding trekking for those who take on this one day charity challenge!
Join us as we trek to the top of Wales to conquer Mount Snowdon at an elevation of 3,560ft. Our trail to the summit is the Pyg Track, which starts at the top of Pen y Pass and rises steadily with the imposing Crib Goch directly above. As the path gradually rises we are privy to amazing views down to Glaslyn far below. We continue to zig zag up until reaching the monolith which opens up dramatic views as far as Anglesey; from here it’s just a short walk to the summit.
After congratulations all round and the obligatory celebration photos at the summit, we start our descent on the Llanberis Path. Although this is the longest in distance, it is a gradual descent, so easy going underfoot after the strenuous climb up to the summit and we are treated to the most stunning views as we wind our way down to Llanberis for our celebration meal!
Day 1 – Meet early morning in Llanberis village for registration and briefing. Transfer to top of Pen y Pass to start trekking. Trek to summit of Mount Snowdon (3,560ft) via Pyg Track then descend via Llanberis Path to Llanberis village. Celebration dinner and overnight in Llanberis.
Approximate trekking distances:
Pyg Track 3.4 miles (5.4km)
Llanberis Path 3.8 miles (6.1km)
Day 2 – After breakfast, it’s goodbyes and farewells as we start our homeward journeys.
