‘Go Wild’ Snowdonia Hike

Hiking to the ‘Devil’s Kitchen’ was definitely not something I’d have expected myself to do on an average Sunday morning. However, it was an amazing experience and I had a wonderful time. The most fun and adventurous part of the day was scrambling through a stream with the other students and throwing snowballs at each other! We got to eat our lunch at the Devil’s Kitchen too; the view was so picturesque that it made the food taste better. It really allowed us to bond with each other and connect with nature. We also saw many cute puppies throughout the hike, which made it even more brilliant. Not only this, but we enjoyed some more food after our trek, as we used up a lot of energy whilst hiking. It was a good job that the hot chocolate before the hike was delicious, fulfilling and warming too!

I gathered some quotes from a couple of friends who also went on this trip:

“It was very windy and cold – I nearly froze my hands off, but we experienced some very pretty views” – Vangie, 6.1

“The hike was thrilling. The view was beautiful, and most importantly, the whole experience itself was just irreplaceable.” – Edelyne, 6.1

Note from editor: The Devil’s Kitchen is part of the Cwm Idwal walk, in Snowdonia. The Devil’s Kitchen is the name given to the dark, black crack which splits the rock between Y Garn and Glyder Fawr. The Welsh name for Devil’s Kitchen is Twll Du, meaning ‘black hole’.
