Moel Siabod (Mo-el Sha-bod - Shapely Hill) sits isolated above the villages of Betws-y-Coed and Capel Curig and is the highest peak in the Moelwynion mountain range.

From the top of the mountain, it is reputedly possible to see 13 of the 14 highest peaks in Wales on a clear day without turning one's head.

The words Moel Siabod translate from Welsh as shapely hill.
