Snowdon – May 2020
Date/Time: 09/05/2020, All Day Location: Snowdon, Llanberis
We are trekking Snowdon for Sunset
Snowdon, or Yr Wyddfa to use its Welsh name, is the highest mountain in Wales, and at 1035metres is higher than any mountain in England. It sits majestically in Snowdonia National Park, its rugged beauty providing you with the most amazing opportunity for adventure.
The ‘Manchester Homeless Charter’ team are inviting you to join them on a Snowdon adventure to fundraise for this wonderful charity.
This trek will take the Llanberis Path to the summit, arriving in time to experience the most amazing views across Snowdonia at sunset.
You can find out more about Snowdon and the Llanberis Path here. You will then descend via the Llanberis Path.
