overview

This trek is specially designed to help those training to climb the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro! The night you attempt the summit can be daunting, so we have designed a training weekend replicating what to expect which will help you prepare for the toughest day of the upcoming trek. Our Snowdon night training weekend will see you trekking through the day, resting in the evening and then waking up around midnight to start the trek to the summit of Mount Snowdon. Be ready for the toughest part of the challenge, so come along and join us in bringing the Kilimanjaro summit night to the UK!

DAY 1

We will meet at 11:00 at the Llanberis YHA to check in and collect our packed lunches before we start out trek at 12:00. We finish back at the YHA at about 15:00, giving us time to get changed for supper at our YHA. We will try to get a few hours sleep at 21:00 to prepare for our night walk.

DAY 2

We are awoken at 00:00 by our trek leader ready to set off on our night walk for 01:00 – 02:00. We summit Snowdon at about 05:00 – 06:00 before returning back to the YHA for breakfast. You then have the chance to get a few hours sleep in before departing at around 11:00 - 12:00.
