Nant Peris Car Park to Pen-y-Pass

If you are approaching Snowdon from the Llanberis direction it is "a lot quicker and easier" to immediately turn right into the Nant Peris car park rather than drive up to Pen-y-Pass, find it full and then drive back down again !

Remember it is still the same cheap fare - just 1.50 single - if you travel all the way from Llanberis, Capel Curig, Betws-y-Coed or Llanrwst !

Snowdon Sherpa Bus Timetables
unofficial website

The small car park at Pen-y-Pass is usually full by 0900
during the summer !!!

so either use the
1.50 single PEN-Y-PASS
or consider travelling on a "S2" Sherpa from further afield to avoid having to pay car parking fees

Penygwryd lay-byes
to Pen-y-Pass

If you are approaching Snowdon from the Betws-y-Coed or Beddgelert direction it is a lot easier to park at Penygwryd, but make sure you park in the designated areas and NOT on the road or you will end up with a hefty "yellow" parking fine !

Then use the Sherpa to and from Pen-y-Pass

Alternatively use the footpath across the fields to Pen-y-Pass   (but whatever you do, AVOID walking along the dangerous main road for your own safety)
  B E W A R E ....................... !!!
Car Parking in Snowdonia 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

This "unofficial" website attempts to show what is still available
and to encourage greater use includes some suggested
"trips round Snowdonia - without your car"
