The Brecon Beacons

Walking in the sky.

The Brecon Beacons is the title range of the national park, containing the tallest peaks in South Wales. They have far more obvious glacial formation than other parts of the park. The peaks are formed as glacial horns on the arêtes between corries to the north, and (for most of them) a single glacial valley to the south.

From here, we used a car to cross from the Storey Arms car park to the forests by Ystradfellte. If you prefer to walk, head down the Taff Fawr to the Cantref Reservoir, then cross the A4059 over to the Afon Hepste. Once at the road to Ystradfellte, head towards Ystradfellte to join the route at the forests. It will take about a day.
