Snowdonia Mountain Railway

 

A Tourist Attraction in Wales

Welcome to Snowdon Mountain Railway. Majestic Snowdon dominates the glorious, ancient landscape of North Wales. At 1085m it is a true mountain and a place of legend – said to be the burial place of the giant ogre Rhita, vanquished by King Arthur. Some believe that Arthur’s Knights still sleep beneath.

My friends and I visited Snowdonia in North Wales. We took the mountain train to have a glimpse of one of the most beautiful mountain areas in the world. It was a perfect day for travel and also to take a ride on the train.

Since I am afraid of heights, I freaked out the moment we reached on top. The summit of Snowdon from the miner’s track

But, it was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity and we took a lot of photographs. There was a store and a cafe right at the top of the mountain for visitors. Some purchased souvenirs and some drank tea.
