These lakes are below Cnicht in Snowdonia at one of my favourite parts of Wales. It’s a singular place with craggy rock, rough hills, beautiful lakes, and views across to Snowdon and the sea. The Gwynant valley, below, is also lovely. This is not an area where you climb a peak and get the satisfaction of a summit and panorama, although you can do that with Cnicht. It’s a place to wander and explore for a different kind of satisfaction.
