Which do you think is more spectacular… the drive from Bethesda up the Ogwen Valley or the drive from Llanberis up to Pen-y-Pass?
I usually only usually drive down these passes (for some strange reason) and yes they are both quite spectacular.
Tonight, in the half light, I drove up the Ogwen Valley and was amazed at how spectacular it really is. My car felt dwarfed by the scale of the steep sides of the valley… a typical glaciated valley. The slabs of Cwm Idwal loomed at the head of the valley.
I would’ve loved to have been able to take some photos but it was too dark. I must drive back up there again when there is a bit more light.
Anyway… if you know the two passes in question what are your thoughts… Llanberis or Ogwen?
