#TRAVEL – Wales: 4 Waterfall Hike

Croseo I Cyrmu!

Wales.

My home.  No better place to re-ignite my #TRAVEL series with.

With a population of just over 3 million people, and almost 10 million sheep (I’m not joking), Wales isn’t exactly ‘on the map’. 

Well, it should be…

Wales boasts vibrant green landscapes for as far as the eye can see. Hidden amongst the hills, collieries and trees are many concealed gems that can be sought out…

Waterfalls!

In fact, there are hundreds of waterfalls scattered throughout this mountainous country.  The scenic environment and wet climate have bred these rapids for thousands of years and their offspring is spectacular.

Just north of the infamous Pendryn Whisky Distillery lies the ‘Brecon Beacons 4 Waterfalls Walk’. This scenic little hike takes you along a picturesque path through the woods were you’ll be greeted by 4 of them –Sgwd Clun-gywn, Sgywd y Pannwr, Sgwd Isaf Clun-gywn and Sgwd yr Eira.

The path begins close to the picturesque little village of Ystradfellte.  It isn’t too strenuous, but some parts of the track can be quite slippery, so wear appropriate footwear.

There is a National Park car park that charges around 4GBP per day.    It’s located at the beginning of the path.  From there, you just follow the winding path which will eventually loop back around on itself.

Depending on your speed and fitness, the Brecon Beacons 4 Waterfall walk should take no longer than 3 – 4 hours to complete.

Have fun, be safe & Enjoy Wales!
