The majority of the most popular mountains in Wales are hosted within the Snowdonia’s National park and if you like rocky, rough and tough climbs then this is the place to be. Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales at a height o 1085 meters offers sensational hiking and for the brave and sure footed the knife edge of Crib Goch offers an adrenaline rush akin to bungee jumping. If Scafell is seconded by Helvellyn then the second to Snowdon in polarity has to be Tryfan at a height of 918 meters. Its iconic two vertical standing stones at its summit known as Adam and Eve makes it unique amongst the mountains of the world.
Outside of Snowdonia there is Cadair Idris at 893 meters which rears up from the shores of the beautiful Mawddach Estuary. Further south lying between Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons are the Cambrian Mountains s which span the counties of Powys, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire.
