The reason we are all here, although don’t take that in a literal sense. Mount Snowdon is the highest point of Wales and the highest peak outside of the Scottish Highlands, stretching 1,085m into the sky. As far as tourism goes it doesn’t get any busier, with more than half a million making their way here on an annual basis. Snowdonia National Park spreads out around it, the first national park in Wales and far and away its most famous, a verdant love letter to the rooftop of Wales. There are a number of trails that lead to the summit of Snowdon, with the Mountain Railway an excellent option for those not after a long hike. This is a case of the journey being as important as the destination, although the views from that destination may well just take your breath away.
