The Three Peaks, Hiking Snowdon

Hiking Snowdon

The day before to hiking Snowdon, I found a nice accommodation in Llanberis, and I could not go to sleep without to visit two beautiful places for photography, one is right next to Lake Llyn Padarn, the lonely tree, and the Ceunant Mawr Waterfall.


It is the time to hit the road, so I started walking slowly to the top. The first part of the route was good, even if it was raining, I enjoyed the landscape, I took pictures of the train coming from Llanberis to the summit, at one point I had one of the most pleasant surprises, a rainbow shows up in the sky after we passed Halfway House.

The tough way to the top

After we crossed the rail again, the weather worsened, the rain broke and the wind blew very hard. Although I had equipment suitable for mountain and bad weather, I watered all the way to the skin. I had to close the phone and hide the camera in the jacket. But here I am, I did it, I touch the top.

A dream come true :). Although I was tired, cold, wet… I had the biggest smile :). I step up in Hafod Eryri ( the cafe on the top) like a winner.

I drank one warm tea, dried up a little bit and started walking down to Llanberis. I didn’t feel tired or cold anymore, I didn’t even notice the rain. After a couple of hours, I arrived at my accommodation, change the into warm clothes and go out. I have to buy souvenirs for my dear ones and find a place to have a warm soup.

That was my short adventure, The Three Peaks did in 3 days. Was a pleasant experience, even if the weather wasn’t good with me all the time, and I didn’t do so much picture and video as I wanted, I’m happy. I recommend to everyone to try that experience, you can do it in 24 hours, or 3 days as I did, but also you can do it in one week or a month. If you need any advice regarding the trip, please do not hesitate to drop me a line at

Thank you very much for your time reading this and enjoy the pictures.
