Snowdon is Wales' highest mountain. The Welsh name Yr Wyddfa means “the tumulus”, as according to legends, this is the tomb of the giant Rhitta Gawr, who was killed by King Arthur. Snowdon is a much-visited mountain as it is ideal for beautiful hikes along the grassy slopes. To the east and north, however, the mountain face is rocky and falls off steeply, which is why Sir Edmund Hillary used to train here before his first ascent of Mount Everest.
