Go for a walk in Waterfall Country
For a stunning day out why not visit Waterfall Country which is a stunning region of the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr Geopark.
The newly refurbished Waterfalls Centre in the village of Pontneddfechan provides a great starting point to explore this beautiful area. The Centre houses an exciting interactive exhibition showing the origins and uniqueness of the Fforest Fawr Geopark, the formation of the waterfalls and the effects of the rocks on the lives of people through history to the present time.
It is an ideal place to start a walk along one of the many paths to the waterfalls and to visit the remains of the gunpowder works and silica mines which hint at the hive of activity and industry that once filled this enchanting place.
To walk behind the curtain of water at Sgwd yr Eira (Waterfall of the Snow) is an experience never to be forgotten!
