strong>Llanberis/Snowdon walking tour route
 

1.Snowdon – 1085 metres or 3559 feet makes Snowdon or Yr Wyddfa, to give it its proper name, the highest mountain in Wales and England. Thousands of people are drawn each year to this majestic mountain and ascend to its summit either by foot or mountain bike. There are six main footpaths to the summit of Snowdon, three of which are easily accessible from Llanberis. The first is the ‘Llanberis path’ which starts from the village and rises more or less parallel to the railway over 8kms (5 miles) to the summit. The next is the ‘Miners Track’ which starts from Pen y Pass which is at the head of the valley from Llanberis. The third option and in our opinion, a better walk up Snowdon, is the PYG track. This is also started also from Pen y Pass and gives an interesting and scenic option to the summit. Again you can return to Llanberis via the Llanberis path.
 
2.Electric mountain – Set against a magnificent backdrop of the towering mountains and the magnificent scenery of Snowdonia, Electric Mountain is First Hydro Company’s Visitor centre in Llanberis. Its split-level layout contains a gift shop and café and is the starting point for the tour of Dinorwig Power Station.
 
3.Snowdon Mountain Railway – Since 1896 visitors have been travelling to Llanberis, to experience the unique rail journey to the Summit of the highest mountain in Wales and England. A true mountain and place of legend, come with us and see exactly why Snowdon Mountain Railway has been described as one of the most unique and wonderful railway journeys in the world. With stunning scenery and awe-inspiring views, it’s all part of a great day out for you and your family in North Wales.
