Mountains

The mountains that exist in Gwynedd are world famous; people have been visiting them for centuries of which the most well known include Charles Darwin in 1831 and in the early 1950’s the successful Everest team established their training headquarters in Snowdonia. They are the tallest peaks in Wales and England and those that lie in Gwynedd make up the majority of Snowdonia, renowned as one of Britain’s most beautiful National Parks.

Whilst walking, as well as enjoying the views of both mountain and sea, it is also possible to spot fossils and interesting plants and animals which include the very rare Snowdon Lily, which can only be found in Snowdonia, as well certain mountain birds such as the Ring Ouzel.
