  • Dan Hobson

    The first waterfall most hikers encounter when exploring 'Waterfall Country' in the Brecon Beacons is Sgwd Uchaf Clun-Gwyn, meaning ‘upper fall of the white meadow’. Comprising two sets of falls, a few hundred metres apart, the upper falls are the highest and thunder dramatically into the River Mellte below. The lower falls are a picturesque series of cascades that flow into the steep gorge below.

    I was really excited about the sight. But the tour increases from waterfall to waterfall. You just have to see that.

    You will be amazed to know that guys actually kayak off this waterfall when the water level is right. Looking down the river they go over on river left. There is a constant flow of water always on river left that has made a bucket like imprint in the rock over thousands of years. In the winter when the flow is heavier they have to hit this 4m x 4m bucket....and survive!This is also just a beautiful walking area. If you do the 'full' 20km waterfall walk you can take in most of the waterfalls in this area that are on the rivers Mellte, Hepste and Nedd Fechan. You can start at a variety of points around the route that has car parking namely Ystradfellte, Porth Yr Ogof or Pontneddfechan. Otherwise just do the best sections of the walk.
