    This route captures the rugged charm Snowdonia perfectly. Boasting magnificent views of the mountainous landscape at every turn, prepare to have your breath taken away many times—and not just from the climbs.

    Starting from the A5 road, it is a challenging push past the blue waters of Llyn Bochlwyd and onto the first peak of Glyder Fach: the sixth highest mountain in Wales. From there, you follow the path to the slightly taller Glyder Fawr.

    A truly spectacular place, Glyder Fawr boasts perfect panoramas of the bold, wild and rugged landscape, including the giants of Snowdon and Crib Goch, which shimmer majestically in the distance on clear days.

    After conquering the Gylders, you get your first glimpse of Llyn Idwal. It is lovely to see this honeypot attraction of Snowdonia from the clouds; away from the crowds that gather on the calmer landscape below.

    Before this route ends, you also get to experience the delights of Devil’s Kitchen. The ominous dark crack in the rocks releases mysterious plumes of steam escape every now and again. Or, as folklore says, when the Devil is home and cooking.

    If you are feeling like an expert hike, why not try and conquer the peak of Tryfan first? It will add roughly two hours to the expedition—and will be a challenge—but if the weather is good and you are feeling fit, you will not regret this fabulous extension.
