Myself and my husband did this climb as part of a charity climb. The views are worth the visit and of course if you are visiting for the sights you could of course just take the train and go to the visitor and cafe at the top.

We drove around the park some to get information on day hikes. We were staying in Conwy and couldn't find much information in Conwy. There's no profit in providing information. Anyway we saw some great scenery and settled on walking up Mt Snowdon. For those in the US Northeast it's a smaller Mt Washington. There is a cafeteria at the... More

Of course there are many routes up Snowdon. We followed the mountain railway route which is longest but gentlest! Don't be fooled by gentle there are a couple of real steep inclines on this route. The views from bottom to top are truely magnificent and will drive you forward to conquer the summit. The scenery is totally amazing though you... More

Since arriving in Llanberis, everything was easy and straightforward - the walking paths were clearly signposted and everywhere was nice and clean, and well maintained. Walked up the Llanberis path to the summit, had a break at the top (and used the shop to buy some walking sticks for the downward journey) and came back to the village. Lovely day... More

We just drove through the area, but it was absolutely stunning. There are places to hike, picnic, and just enjoy the atmosphere. The landscape is gorgeous, and my coworkers are I are already planning our future lives there.

Started at 0830, went up pyg trail and back down miners...these two trails do meet for a while....fab day...weather was good and scenerary was immense...although misty at the summit.... Took us 7 hours there and back... It was me and my ace (71year old) dad, who was carrying a knee injury....definitely recommend it...car parking is £10 though!

As everyone else had said the scenery is amazing and incredible, fantastic views take your breath away! The Llanberis path appeared to have all ages of people experiencing the climb and from what we heard although one of the easier routes it is one of the longest (6 hours roud trip). It's great that you can take your dog with... More

11 June 2016, got to Snowdon Mountain Railway from Caernarfon, 15mins away, ample parking near the ticket office. Had to collect our booked tickets up to the Summit 30mins before train departure, 1 hr train ride was enjoyable with excellent views. The summit was pretty crowded. Found a quiet spot and had a picnic while enjoying the view. We will... More

Incredible describes it all really. Today was the second time I'd walked it. Took about 6 hours altogether with 40 minutes stop at the top for a hot chocolate which was much needed as walking in the clouds was freezing. Amazing view- definitely worth the walk!!
