Snowdon or Yr Wyddfa?

If you’re new to the mountain then it’s likely you’ve only ever heard it referred to as Snowdon but its actual name in Welsh is Yr Wyddfa (pronounced er-withva). This website is aimed at people who are looking to learn more about the mountain so we’ve decided to predominantly use the English name which is more likely what people are going to search for. However you’ll go a long way with the locals if you call it by its Welsh name when you get here! You can find out more by reading Snowdon / Yr Wyddfa – where does the name come from? and How do I pronounce Snowdon in Welsh?
