Cafe is closed when we got to top. However stunning views all the way up. The Watkins path is tough to do & you need right kit. But worth it at the top.

Steep and rocky in places but fantastic views throughout. Alright it's crowded at times but take in where you are. Fantastic glacial scenery all around. You will scramble and you need proper gear but the effort is well worth it. Despite the wet the rocks...More

Great experience, well worth it. Went up Miners track, stunning scenery easy start but does get challenging towards the end. Foggy up top to start but cleared to see amazing views, incredibly cold and windy so wrap up. Came down Pyg track and again challenging,...More

Three of us took on the Watkin path which is the most difficult route up Snowdon. The track is fairly easy until around 30mins from the summit when it turns into a scramble, all fours are required at times! The weather was pretty poor and...More

We went on the longer but more gradual route up Snowdon which is the Llanberis Pass, please be assured that even though it is more gradual it still is very hard if you are not an accomplished climber. We knew our limits and reached the...More

Having ticked off a number of Munro's, I was very much looking forward to the climb up Snowdon. Unfortunately for us it wasn't as clear a day as we hoped for but still well worth the trek. There is of course the option to hop...More

We have been to Snowdonia many times and never seen the summit through the clouds. So on a beautifully sunny day (forecast the day before) we set off early for the Pyg track car park. At 7 it was full. Without a plan B we...More

Not sure to be honest. I know the train down one way is £22! After our route we wanted the train down but it was fully booked all day because people pay for the train up and down!

I walked the Pyg Track up and Miners Track down. On the way up I did it in two and three quarter hours. It all depends on your fitness but a round trip of 6 hours sounds about right
