The mountains of the northern Carneddau range feel quite different to most of Snowdonia’s peaks – bare and rounded with only modest dips between summits. This makes for fantastic walking, especially on a good day when the views stretch for miles, both over the mountains to the south and east and over the coast to the north and west. The valleys that cut into these rolling hills provide easy passage to the summits, and themselves are spectacular, cradling tumbling rivers, dotted with cascades and waterfalls. And the walk finishes beneath one of the tallest falls in all of Wales –
Aber Falls – a true spectacle. There is the odd section though, where the path is faint, so good visibility is definitely needed for this walk.
