Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales, located within the Snowdonia region. Narrow ridges radiate from Snowdon's central peak, and several subsidiary peaks rise along these ridges. The rugged beauty of the region, and the many quiet lakes that lie in its valleys, have made the area popular with tourists. Trails are plentiful on the mountain, and non-walking tourists can reach the summit by train.
