Cwm Llan on Beddgelert travel guide
Travel Guide for Wales and England >  Valleys in Wales and England >  Cwm Llan
Cwm Llan is a hanging valley on the southern slopes of Snowdon, in Gwynedd, North Wales. The valley lies between Yr Aran to the south west, Yr Wyddfa, Snowdon, to the north and Y Lliwedd to the north east.

Afon Cwm Llan flows through the valley before tumbling down to Nant Gwynant in a series of beautiful waterfalls.
Cwm Llan contains the ruins of the South Snowdon Quarry workings and the remains of the old crushing mill of the Hafod-y-Llan copper mine. Some of the buildings are pock marked with bullet holes – a legacy of the commando training that took place in the valley during the Second World War.

The Watkin Path, the longest route to the summit of Snowdon passes through Cwm Llan en-route from Bethania Bridge in Nant Gwynant to the summit of Snowdon.

The Cwm Llan section of the path is an easy walk, however, once the path starts to climb the lower slopes of Y Lliwedd and Snowdon, walkers would be advised to expect some difficult mountain walking.

If you want a nice place to visit but dont feel you could manage the climb to the summit of Snowdon I would strongly recommend a visit to Cwm Llan...it has all the natural beauty of Snowdon without too much effort!
