Interactive Peak Bagging and Mountain/Hill Tick Lists for Snowdonia National Park
Snowdonia National Park is the area of Wales within the Snowdonia National Park boundary including the non-National Park 'island' around Blaenau Ffestiniog.
Created in 1951, Snowdonia National Park is the 3rd largest in the UK with an area of 2,130 km² (823 sq mi). It covers parts of Conwy, Gwynedd and Powys.
Approximately 350,000 people climb and bag Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, every year. The name Snowdon comes from the Saxon Snow Dun (Snow Hill). The Welsh name for the mountain is Yr Wyddfa (loosely pronounced 'ur-oo-ith-va') which means 'The Burial Place'.
Northern Snowdonia is the only place in the UK that you can find the Snowdon Lily (Gagea Serontina) - an Artic-alpine plant. It flowers from June onwards and has white flowers with purple or reddish veins.
In 2004 the Independent Newspaper reported that Crib Goch near Snowdon is the wettest place in the United Kingdom with an average rainfall of 4,473 millimetres per year over the previous 30 years. That is 176.1 inches or over 14.5 feet! Better take a waterproof.
Snowdonia in Welsh is Eryri (loosely pronounced 'error_ree') which means 'The Highland'.
