Three views of the campsite in the Ogwen Valley, North Wales with Tryfan showing left and right. As you can see, it's pretty isolated, so a car is essential to get around on rest days
Left shows a view of the Glyders from about half way up the western side of Tryfan. Centre shows the summit approach (no set footpath from here on and right is a view en route up to Glyder Fach from south side of Tryfan. Very typical of North Wales mountain scenery
Left is the starter point for walks to the Glyders and Tryfan from the A5. It also houses the famous Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team. There is a small Hostel there as well. Centre is Llamberis with the Lakeside Steam Railway running from the Slate Museum
Left shows a slate cutting display at the Museum, centre a Factory restoration and right is Caernarfon Castle, where Prince Charles was invested as Prince of Wales.
The roads from the English border to North Wales are mainly single lane. You may consider taking a train to Bangor and hiring out a car. The main route by train from London is changing at either Rhyll or Chester
