Pistyll Rhaeadr (Waterfall), Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant


What a shock to see this waterfall, Pistyll Rhaeadr at Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant in Powys, not far from Bala and Lake Vyrnwy. When arriving it was a bit of a nightmare with cars, only a single lane road and worse as its a dead end, was a busy place. Finally got to the FREE car park after having to pull over for so many cars, the car park was very uneven and was a nightmare for my low car (scraping the bottom). 

Walking up to the waterfall we come to another car park, this one is £4 but more flat, had a lovely cafe that was very busy, seats outside with nice views, also toilets that you need 20p.

We carried on walking up to the waterfall through a gate next to the cafe, was free but was a box to leave donations if you want.

Walking up the path to the waterfall i was gobsmacked, what a sight, around 250 foot waterfall, it was only a 5 min walk from the car park, there was another path that leads up to the top.

When leaving and heading back through Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant we noticed was a nice pub (the plough) to stop for a pint. Next stop Dyserth Waterfall.
