In addition to the regular weekday journeys there are now two "new" Sunday "S4" Sherpa journeys
to/from Caernarfon which also serve the Rhyd Ddu and Snowdon Ranger paths
  B E W A R E ....................... !!!
Car Parking near Snowdon is very limited and can be expensive if a space can be found

The alternative is to leave your car behind and use the
Snowdon Sherpa Bus network

It is possible to climb Snowdon from Beddgelert
every day throughout the year
(by Sherpa to the start of all of the paths)

(except Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year's Day)


If you plan to go up and down the "west" side Rhyd Ddu path or Snowdon Ranger path,
the "south" side Watkin path,   the "east" side Miners track or PYG track
or the "north" side Llanberis path (via Pen-y-Pass)
then ask the driver of your first bus for a 5 Snowdon Sherpa Day ticket
--- this enables you to go up one path and return down another

(The "Snowdon Day" ticket is valid to return on any Sherpa journey)

Remember - if the weather is bad or you find the going is too hard
- turn back
