Y Garn at a height of 947m is situated at the north end of the Snowdonia mountain range known as The Glyders. These beautiful mountains form a horseshoe around two picturesque lakes Llyn Bochlwyd and the larger Llyn Idwel with the iconic Tryfan mountain situated on the ranges northern flank. The cwm of Llyn Idwel is a truly idyllic sight when viewed from the summits and this range of mountains and is, all bar Snowdon, one of the most popular playgrounds for walkers and climbers in Snowdonia.
