Description [Suggest Change]

This is the northernmost valley of Snowdonia, running east to west then turning north to the town of Bethesda. Llyn Ogwen the big mountain lake to the right of the A5 is the legendary resting place of Excalibur - King Arthur's famous sword. On the right of the valley lie the Carneddeau, a somewhat desolate windswept part of the range, while on the left lies Tryfan, The Glyders, and Idwal - many routes here.
