Sgwd Henrhyd or Hendryd Falls

Hendryd Waterfall is South Wales’s tallest waterfall with a 90ft drop. It is situated near Coelbren on the River Nant Llech.

A spectacular and mysterious sight especially as for the sure footed it is possible walk behind the falls.

The Fossil Trees which stand outside Swansea Museum were found here by Sir William Edmond Logan who later became the head of the Geological Survey of Canada.

The waterfall was also the entrance to the bat cave in the film Batman – The Dark Knight Rises.

It is a steep walk that can sometimes be slippery, wear waterproofs if planning to get close.

 

Travelling a little further to Pontneddfechan and the Waterfall Centre, where there is information given on the many stunning walks available some easy ranging up to huge adventures taking in up to nine waterfalls in one day.
