Snowdonia National Park is easily recognised by its rising peaks in north Wales. Home to the highest mountain in Wales or England – Snowdon at 3,560 feet – Snowdonia's scenery also includes vast woodlands, open moorland and rugged coastlines. The third-largest national park in the country, Snowdonia covers 823 square miles. Though one of the wettest parts of the British Isles, Snowdonia has a magnificence that still draws millions of visitors each year. Climbing Snowdon is a must for those seeking outdoor challenge. The easiest route to the summit is the 5-mile Llanberis Track, which starts at Llanberis. As on all mountain or moorland walks in the area, hikers should be prepared for sudden and unexpected changes in weather conditions.
