About Mount Snowdon

At 1,085 metres above sea level, Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales and the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands.
The rocks that formed Snowdon were produced by volcanoes over 400 million years ago and the mountain now sees over 350,000 walkers reaching its summit every year. The mountain was even used by Edmund Hillary in training for the 1953 ascent of Mount Everest.


Food for Kids

At Muslim Hands we know that the long term effects of hunger run deep and can cripple whole communities. Endemic malnutrition leads to poor health and increased school drop-out rates. This in turn leads to continued poverty and the vicious cycle continues from one generation to the next.

We are currently providing over 11,000 meals a day, but there is much more to be done. With your generous support, we can reach even more children with the support they need to keep them strong and healthy through their daily lives.

Q. Who can take part in the Snowdon Challenge?

A. The Snowdon Challenge is open to anyone who is fit and able to walk. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Q. What are the registration requirements?

A. You must complete the registration form and complete the registration fee payment of £50 to secure your space.
Once your space is secured, we ask you fundraise a minimum of £350. However, we are hoping that our enthusiastic fundraisers aim for a more pioneering individual target.

Q. What should I wear?

A. Please dress in your warmest clothes, with optional layers that are easy to put on and take off. Temperatures can differ, but the higher you get the colder it will become. Please ensure your footwear is comfortable and ideally, weatherproof.

We advise the following: walking/hiking boots, trekking stick (especially for the descent), wind/waterproof jacket, thick socks, ruck sack, a pair of extra socks, hiking trousers (avoid jeans as they do not dry quickly, should it rain), spare jumper, gloves, a watch and a sunhat/sunglasses.

Q. What should I bring?

A. A bottle of water is recommended. Snacks, such as fruit, will be provided on the coaches. However, we strongly recommend you bring extra snacks to last throughout the day.
A meal will be provided upon completion. It is advisable that you ensure your mobile phone is fully charged, in case we need to contact you.

Q. Are the walking routes difficult?

A. We will be climbing the Llanberis Track as this is the easiest, having a steady incline but not quite the shortest path. The path is well sign posted from the parking area and follows a track for 10 miles up until the summit.
