Walkers are being encouraged to prepare properly before walking in Snowdonia.
As the summer holidays are well under way for thousands of families in Snowdonia, walkers are encouraged to take advantage of the large number of alternative walking trails in Snowdonia. However, with the current unsettled weather, preparation is essential.
This is echoed by the Llanberis Mountain Rescue Team, who say it is important to "take care" when walking in the area.
They have released a list of tips for those who are thinking about walking in Snowdonia.
- Prepare - take a map and plenty of water
- Dress - make sure you have a sun hat, sun cream and wet weather clothes just in case!
- Weather - have a look at the forecast beforehand and don't be afraid to cancel your walk if the weather isn't suitable
- Respect - follow the Countryside Code and take your rubbish home
