A Hanging Valley
A Hanging Valley
Cwm Bochlwyd is a classic example of a hanging valley, its floor lying ('hanging') above the floor of the main valley. This is the result of the glacial overdeepening of the main valley, in this case, the Ogwen. Llyn Ogwen is seen on the right and Nant Ffrancon valley lies beyond.
