The Llanberis Path

The Llanberis Path is the easiest, having a steady incline but not the shortest path. A well defined path with minimal route finding. Even so, the path is the scene of many accidents each year and unfortunately fatalities are not uncommon. The advice is whenever in the mountains please take care, have the right gear and most importantly, an experienced guide. If any doubt seek professional advice and help from one of the many excellent mountain guides who would be delighted to show you a great day out and maybe help you explore one of the more interesting Snowdon or other less well known Snowdonia mountain gems!
