Llyn Llydaw

Llyn Llydaw is a natural lake, formed in an ampitheatre like valley that was created by years of glacial erosion. It’s one of the most visited lakes in the UK, with thousands of footsteps sounding along its banks on the popular Miners Path to the top of Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales and England.
