Cwm Eigiau

Carnedd Llewelyn 1064m

Foel Grach 976m

Note: A minimum of 4 people is required for a walk to take place


The Carneddau range is around 70 square miles, wild, rugged with remote mountain tops where on a good day we will see no-one else! The highest point, Carnedd Llewelyn at 1064m in height is only 21m shy of the highest peak in Wales, Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) at 1085m, but it rarely sees any visitors in comparison.
