Llyn Bochlwyd (Lake Australia) – Cwm Idwal

Hello.

I took this image at the beginning of last year, when I was getting back into Mountain walking. We were hiking up Tryfan, the weather was glorious, and we had a big group. We stopped here for a wee break, and I started snapping away. Here’s the result of a 12 photo stitch:

Llyn Bochlwyd - Australia Lake, Cwm Idwal

Llyn Bochlwyd, or Lake Australia got it’s name because if viewed from a vantage point on Tryfan, it looks pretty close to the shape of Australia, which is pretty cool. It’s located right in the heart of Cwm Idwal, in the Cwm below Castell Y Gwynt, above Llyn Idwal. ┬áIt offers a really beautiful panorama of the Glyderau, and all the way to the coast to the North.

Tiss a nice spot.
