Y Garn is a mountain in Snowdonia, North Wales and is the tenth highest peak in Wales, offering superb views over the Carneddau, Ogwen Valley, the Glyders and Snowdon.
Went here a few weeks ago just to walk round and see the waterfalls, this time we went to climb the mountain.
The entrance is a narrow path between high rocks, from there you follow the path and make your way round the lake and you’ll see a path leading upwards and just keep climbing.
Great views all around this place with so many different walks so if you don’t fancy a mountain climb there’s options for easier, flat walks.
One of the best.
