I felt a definite sense of achievement having successfully walked to the summit of Snowdon and back down again.
If you take the Llanberis path, there is no danger - it is really just a footpath, but just after the halfway point it does gets quite challenging for a while, purely through the steepness of the ascent and the uneven rock steps. It gets easier again after that section.
Pick the right day and the views just get better and better and better. If you just want to get the view, you can take the little train to the top and back - it is worth noting that if you walk up, you are unlikely to be able to take the train back, as most people buy a return ticket..!!
If you're thinking of doing this trek, wear appropriate footwear, take an extra layer unless it is scorching and definitely take a couple of bottles of water. As mentioned, it is not too challenging if you're a regular walker but you should be prepared, especially if the weather changes. I think it works out about about ten or so miles to walk from the car park at the foot of the mountain, to the summit, and back.
Really good fun...!!
