Snowdon at Night

5 Aug - 6 Aug 2023, Wales

Trekking Mount Snowdon (1,085m) during the daytime is a great challenge - but using torches to light our way and having the moon as our backdrop, summiting at night brings another sense of achievement to an already recognised charity trek.

Seeing the sunrise across Snowdonia National Park will be a memory never forgotten. Upon our descent, we will witness the breathtaking mountain range open up to give glorious views and afterwards we tuck into a delicious celebration breakfast.

Itinerary

We leave leave our meeting place and head to the start of the Llanberis Path. Also known as the Tourist Path, this is one of the longer and more gradual ascents up Snowdon. The first part of the route is along a road towards the Penceunant Tea House, a traditional 18th century cottage. Shortly after the Tea House we leave the road and join the section leading to the Halfway House Café. This is a steady and easy to navigate path shadowing the railway line. Once we reach the Café the path will get noticeably steeper and rockier underfoot with a steep push on to Clogwyn Station, the stretch under the railway bridge providing us with a moment’s respite.

The next stretch rises quite steeply and we’ll soon notice the ground dropping away on either side of our path. The steep gradient finally eases off as we approach the Bwlch Glad standing stone, and from this point the path to the summit follows the railway line all the way up to the final few steps to the summit cairn at 3,560 ft.

Once we reach the summit we’ll celebrate our achievement, although we may not want to spend too much time up there due to the cold! Our descent will take around 2–3 hours, and when we reach the finish line we’ll complete our adventure with a well-earned breakfast.

Trekking distance – approx. 9.5 miles
