Climbing Mount Snowdon | Pyg and Miners Trail | 2 Snowdon Walking Routes

We took a trip to snowdonia with the goal to climb mount snowdon taking the PYG path up and the Miners path down.

We camped at the Llyn Gwynant Campsite http://gwynant.com for two nights and travelled to the starting point at PYG.

Camping is charged per person per night and is usually paid on arrival by cash or credit card. We do not take bookings for tents without hook-ups as we don’t have set pitches, just green fields where you find a pitch to suit you. If you want electricity or are bringing a campervan or caravan you should book see Vans and hookups and Bay bookings for more. Camping is on a first come first served basis and Saturday arrivals in busy holidays can find us full. Prices below are per person per night and cover car parking, hot showers, hire of fire pits, tents, and launching your own boats on the lake: all are free once you have paid camping fees. Extra charges are for gazebos, awnings and large tents, as well as for visitors who are not campers see below. A discount of £1 per night for adults is offered for stays of 5 days or more if all days are paid on arrival.
