Llyn Llydaw is a lake in Snowdonia National Park on the flanks of Snowdon. This long thin lake has formed in a cwm about one-third of the way up the mountain.
Its special significance is that it is one of the most visited lakes in the United Kingdom. Thousands of people every year visit Snowdon and many walk past this lake on the Miners' Track.
Llyn Llydaw is the largest of the three lakes on Snowdon's eastern flank. Higher up lies Glaslyn, and lower down lies Llyn Teyrn
It is the upper lake for Cwm Dyli Power Station.
