Mount Snowdon on Llanberis travel guide
Travel Guide for Wales and England >  Mountains in Wales and England >  Mount Snowdon
Majestic Snowdon dominates the glorious, ancient landscape of North Wales. At 3,560ft (1085m) it is a true mountain, indeed the highest peak in both Wales and England. Snowdon is a place of legend - said to be the burial place of the giant ogre Rhita, vanquished by King Arthur. Some believe that Arthurs knights still sleep beneath.

There are several paths up the mountain, including the Llanberis Path, the Miner's and the Pyg Track, the Watkin Path and South Ridge, and the Rhyd Ddu and Snowdon Ranger Paths.

If all this sounds much too energetic then, unusually for a mountain, you can let the train take the strain. Since 1896, the Snowdon Mountain Railway has been making it easy to claim this mountain peak as one of your lifetime achievements.

In a tremendously ambitious feat of engineering, and uniquely in Britain, a rack and pinion railway was built which rises to within 66ft of the summit of the highest mountain in England and Wales.
