Snowdon - Yr Wyddfa

Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales and is Great Britain's highest mountain south of the Scottish Highlands. It has been described as "probably the busiest mountain in Britain." It is located in Snowdonia National Park (Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri) in Gwynedd. Snowdon is one of three mountains climbed as part of the National Three Peaks Challenge. Snowdon has one of the wettest climates in Great Britain, and usually has significant snowfall each winter. A number of paths lead to Snowdon's summit from all sides and can be combined in various ways. The circular walk starting and ending at Pen-y-Pass and using the Crib Goch route and the route over Y Lliwedd is called the Snowdon Horseshoe.
