Picture of the day: What’s not to hike - 360,000 trekkers make their way up the top of Snowdon
Sunday 15 September 2013
Unusually large numbers of hill walkers on Saturday make their way to the summit of Snowdon, catching the last of the summer weather.
About 360,000 trekkers ascend the 1085m peak - the second highest mountain in Britain - every year. Queues have been known to form at the summit in the busiest summer months. The mountain’s appeal as a major tourist attraction is bolstered by the Snowdon Mountain Railway that makes it way to the summit, travelling 7.6 km from the nearby town of Llanberis.
