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.


Providing Clean Water in Bangladesh

With over 3.4 million people dying from water-related illnesses each year [WHO], unsafe water is the single biggest obstacle to the health and prosperity of communities in the developing world.
Muslim Hands works globally to provide people with access to clean water and sanitation. The type of communities we work with vary greatly so our approach reflects this. Assessing the need for water on an individual basis, we tailor our solutions to specific problems.
With you support, Muslim Hands will be able to provide clean drinking water to some of the poorest communities in Bangladesh.

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 £40 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.
