Featuring the iconic skyline of Pen y Fan, Corn Du and Cribyn
The Brecon Beacons National Park offers some of the area's most impressive scenery.
Rising 886 metres above sea-level, Pen y Fan is the highest point in southern Britain, offering extensive panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
Nestled below Pen y Fan is Cwm Llwch, a circular lake. Nearby, Cwm Gwdi was once a Ministry Of Defence live firing range and training camp.
Don't fancy trekking up the mountain? You could explore Cwm Sere instead. It's an impressive glaciated valley with beautiful waterfalls and pools and Pen y Fan peering overhead.
An outdoor adventure is always around the next tree, hedge or hilltop in the Brecon Beacons. And our list of 50 things to do before you’re 11¾ will set you on your own adventure here. Climb a huge hill, play pooh sticks from a bridge, find your way with a map and compass or go stargazing. So get outdoors and go wild.
When you visit the Brecon Beacons, you might notice we're doing a lot of work in Pont ar Daf woodlands, near the main car park. It might look a bit messy at the moment, but we're turning this monotonous conifer plantation into a more diverse, wildlife and visitor-friendly woodland.
