1. Is the trek suitable for beginners?
Yes for those with a good level of fitness; Mountain Walks team will send you a training plan so your well prepared.
2. What if there is bad weather?
We still go up! We have absolutely no control over the weather, but we will still be taking part in the challenge unless it is deemed too dangerous to do so. Seeing the sunset is a bonus, but this is dependent on the conditions at the top. The main objective is to climb Snowdon at its quietest and descend in the dark.
3. What equipment do I need?
You will need your own headtorch and you will be sent a full-kit list of what you need to bring and wear.
4. What route will we be taking?
The Snowdon Moonlight Trek will start and finish in Llanberis which is in the Snowdon National Park, North Wales. Our meeting point will be Snowdon Mountain Railway. We will be using the Llanberis path and hopefully reaching the summit just before sunset!
5. How long does the Trek take?
We will be doing a total of 9.2 miles at an ascent of 970 metres – this should take us around 7-8 hours in total for the round trip. We will be setting off around 3:30pm (times to be confirmed). It is recommended to book somewhere to stay in Llanberis or the surrounding villages if you didn’t want to travel home afterwards.
