Snowdon and Llanberis, North Wales. Location map
 
  Scene showing the Snowdon massif, Capel Curig, Caernarvonshire (Gwynedd), Wales   The Snowdon massif.

This view, from a point similar to that on the previous page, shows the whole of the Snowdon massif with a light dusting of snow and in clear weather. Weather in Britain does tend to be rather fickle and even more so in the mountainous areas and because of that you should not go walking in the mountains unless you know what you are doing.

The twin peaks of Y Lliwedd can be seen to the left with the next obvious peak to its right being Snowdon itself.

  Scene showing Llanberis Pass looking towards Llanberis, Snowdonia, Caernarvonshire (Gwynedd), Wales   Llanberis Pass from Crib Goch.

Looking North-West along Llanberis Pass towards Llanberis. The two lakes are Llyn Peris, nearest, and Llyn Padarn beyond. Llanberis is on the left bank of Llyn Padarn and this is where the Snowdon Mountain Railway starts.

This viewpoint on Snowdon is at 3000 feet approximately.
