Olympic flame to visit summit of Snowdon
Bookmark and Share
Those who enjoy the chance to go walking up Snowdon will have an extra reason to be on the mountain next year as the highest peak in Wales literally gets fired up for the Olympics.

Games organisers have revealed the hundreds of locations around Britain where the Olympic flame will be taken and one of these will be the 3,560 ft summit in late May.

However, while those wearing walking boots and carrying rucksacks may be able to stand and watch from nearby, the actual torch bearer will be ascending the mountain the easy way, via the Snowdon Mountain Railway.

Other places where walkers may see the torch being carried will include Keswick and Grasmere in the Lake District, Crianlarich in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Aviemore in the Cairngorms and Glencoe.

Those climbing Snowdon without the help of rails can use a number of routes, such as the Snowdon Ranger Path, the Pyg Track and the Watkin Path.
