    Nant Ffrancon is a steep-sided glacial valley dropping to Bethesda between the Glyderau and the Carneddau in Snowdonia, North Wales. The valley starts in Cwm Idwal, carrying water from Llyn-y-Cwn through the Devil's Kitchen and Llyn Idwal to join the Ogwen Valley below the Ogwen Falls on Afon Ogwen. This area, and in particular the Nant Ffrancon Pass, has been frequently used as a filming location for the likes of Carry On up the Khyber and the Doctor Who serial The Abominable Snowman, for which it doubled as the Himalayas.
