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. <br><br> 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. <br><br> 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. <br><br> 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. <br><br>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 has all the natural beauty of Snowdon without too much effort!
