Cwm Idwal is in the Glyderau range of mountains in northern Snowdonia,  North Wales. It is a gem of a walk which measures somewhere between three and four miles, and will take you  from Ogwen Cottage up into the valley and  around the area of Cwm Idwal and Llyn Idwal (Idwal Lake|) which is an absolute paradise for both walkers. In a 2005 poll conducted by Radio Times, Cwm Idwal was ranked the 7th greatest natural wonder in Britan. Llyn Idwal is the small lake  within Cwm Idwal.

A number of small streams flow into Llyn Idwal from around Cwm Idwal. One small river flows out and joins the Afon Ogwen river at Pont Pen-y-Benglog near Ogwen Cottage.

Historically- It is named after Prince Idwal Foel, a grandson of Rhodri Mawr, one of the ancient Kings of Wales.
