About the event

This is an extremely challenging walk and is recommended for experienced walkers or those with more stamina. 

We will have 2 walks - a slower one and a faster one for those who have high fitness levels and wish to go up faster - probbaly for younger fitter people. Faisal will be the "go to" person for the slower walk whilst his son Ihsaan will be the "go to" person for the faster "run" up the mountain

Llanberis Path is the longest and most gradual of the six main paths to the summit of Snowdon, and offers fantastic views of Cwm Brwynog, Llanberis and over the Menai straights towards Anglesey.

The path mainly follows the Snowdon Mountain Railway track, and goes by Hebron, Halfway and Clogwyn stations. Before the railway was opened in 1896, visitors employed guides to lead them to the summit along this path on mule-back.

A remarkable geological feature can be seen from the Llanberis path, the Clogwyn Du’r Arddu syncline. The syncline was formed over thousands of years, as the earth moved and transformed horizontal deposits into vertical layers of rock.

Distance: 9 miles - 14.5Km (there & back)

Ascent: 3,199 feet - 975 metres

Time: About 6 hours (there & back)

Grade: Hard Strenuous Walk

Start/Finish: Far end of Victoria Terrace, Llanberis, off the A4086. Far end of Victoria Terrace, Llanberis, off the A4086.

Parking: There are a large number of car parks in the village of Llanberis starting at £5 per day. Please use designated car parks and do not park on side streets or in residents parking bays.

CAR PARKING

There is a car park in front of the area that has the ticket office for the train up to Snowdon and some shops. It's near LL55 4TD though I think this postcode takes you a bit further. Then we can meet in this area where the shops/food/ticket office is.
