Edmund Hillary, along with his trusted Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, were the first people to successfully climb Everest. They used Snowdon and the surrounded area to train and to test equipment before going on to more treacherous places.
Snowdon towers over Llanberis village and from the top you can see over Snowdonia, Pembrokeshire, Anglesey and on a really good day, even Ireland.
There are many routes up Snowdon, 6 in fact. We have the Snowdon Rangers Path, PYG Track, Miners’ Track, Watkin Path, Rhyd-Ddu Path or the Llanberis Path.
