is fashionable to decry Snowdon and moan about the café and the masses of
tourists on the summit. In fact, Snowdon rates amongst the most beautiful
mountains in the world. Whichever direction you approach it from the size
and grandeur impresses. Its starfish shape radiates six magnificent ridges
each with their own special and individual characters. The deep cwmoedd
(glaciated valleys) range from the easily accessible to hanging valleys
only reached by complicated scrambling.
This mountain has everything from the rarest flowers and insects to ruined mines, from fascinating volcanic rock formations to fossils on the summit. Whether your interest is in challenging ascents, emotive photographs, Arthurian legends, or in studying humanity in every form, the mountain's got something for you!
