On 13th July 2019, together with my Mom, my hockey friend Pat and about fifty strangers, I boarded a coach around the back of Selfridges in Birmingham at 9pm to make our way to Llanberis in Wales. At about 12.40am, we arrived and set off to do a Sunrise Summit of Mount Snowdon. I was not prepared for just how magical it would be.
The Llanberis Path Route
The Llanberis Path is the longest but gentlest way to climb Snowdon- making it the safest choice for ascent in the dark. There and back is about a 9 mile walk, covering an ascent of about 3,200 ft or 975 metres. Whilst there are a couple of sections that are a little steep and require a determined effort, describing it as a strenuous walk is probably about right. I’d say it’s very doable for a wide range of ages and experiences.
