Brecon Beacons Waterfalls


This evening, I am posting information on part of a Four Waterfalls Walk near Ystradfellte in the mountain range known as the Brecon Beacons in South Wales. The nearest major town is Merthyr Tydfil.

This particular walk covers one of the most exciting landscapes in Wales comprising spectacular waterfalls, wooded gorges and intriguing caves.This is where the Hepste, Mellte and Nedd Fechan rivers cascade over layers of millstone grit in course of journey from mountains to the sea.Highlights include:

  • A large cave.
  • Riverside walks.
  • Four waterfalls.
  • Woodland walks.

This area falls within the Fforest Fawr Geopark where the river valleys are abundant with wildlife, mosses, ferns and lichens all of which thrive in the humid conditions found in the steep gorges surrounding the waterfalls.
