How do we travel to Snowdon?
If required, we can provide transport to and from Snowdon for participants of the MYi Youth Trek. You will be contacted with the exact details of the meeting point/time, but currently all transport will be leaving from East London. Other areas can be arranged if there is a demand Insha’Allah – please contact us.
You are also free to make your own way to Snowdon or travel with other challengers. If you decide to make your own way, then we will contact you to inform you of the meeting points and times. Please ensure you are on time.
What shall I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes and warm e.g. loose trousers or bottoms and a loose top. Warm clothing is essential so make sure you are layered up.
How about trainers?
We recommend hiking boots for ankle safety.
Do I need to bring my own food and water?
Yes, but please remember you will be carrying your own food. Ensure you bring a lot of water and small snacks to keep yougoing.
Are there toilets on the way up?
Try to control what you eat for breakfast or the night before so you are not rushing for the toilet. There are no toilets on the way up but from previous experience, even after drinking a lot of water, a lot of it tends to be used up in re-hydrating your body.
Will there be any professional guides?
Yes, there will be a couple of experienced brothers in each group to guide you if you wish.
Will there be any qualified first-aiders?
Yes, again there will be a couple brothers who are qualified first-aiders.
How long will it take to reach the summit?
We intend to get to Snowdon by 11am where we will meet with the rest of the groups. We will then begin the walk and stop a couple times for breaks and lunch. We aim to complete the whole trek in roughly 6-7 hours and then make our way back.
