Moel Siabod (Welsh for "bare hill" with unknown meaning of 'Siabod'), is a mountain in Snowdonia, Wales, which sits isolated above the village of Dolwyddelan. At 872 metres (2,861 ft), it is the highest peak in the Moelwynion mountain range. The UK National Mountain Centre, Plas-y-Brenin, is located at the foot of Moel Siabod. From the top of the mountain, it is reputedly possible to see 13 of the 14 highest peaks in Wales on a clear day without turning one's head.

  • Beautiful, stunning and remote... if you want to avoid the business of Mt. Snowdon this is a beautiful little area full of peaks, lakes and boulder fields.
  • Superb mountain, walk up one side or walk then grade 1 scramble up the other. Good fitness and awareness required. Use a hiking GPS app. Good parking around the base too. Mountain top views are breathtaking!
