Route Outline

This is a Snowdonia walk which is geared more towards visiting some of the remote but attractive llyns (tarns) in the Rhinogs, rather than "ticking off" summits. To illustrate the point, five llyns are included - Llyn Du, Llyn Morwynion, Llyn Cwm Bychan, Llyn Twr Glas and Llyn Pryfed along with one summit, Rhinog Fawr.
