SNOWDONIA

Mountains

MOUNTAINS

Snowdonia may be divided into four areas:

  • The northernmost area is the most popular with tourists, and includes (from west to east) Moel Hebog, Mynydd Mawr and the Nantlle Ridge; the Snowdon Massif; the Glyderau; and the Carneddau. These last three groups are the highest mountains in Wales, and include all Wales' mountains higher than 3000 feet.

  • The second area includes peaks such as Moel Siabod, Cnicht, the Moelwynion, and the mountains around Blaenau Ffestiniog.

  • The third area includes the Rhinogydd in the west as well as the Arenig and the Migneint (this last being an area of bog), and Rhobell Fawr. This area is not as popular with tourists as the other areas, due to its remoteness.

  • The southernmost area includes Cadair Idris, the Tarren range, the Dyfi hills, and the Aran group.

  • The Berwyn range to the south east, has the western edge of it in the park, but the highest summits to the east have been omitted.
