Known as Pontneathvaughan in English, Pontneddfechan is nestled between Aberdare and Ystradgynlais in Powys, South Wales. It is part of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the River Neath flows through the village to its estuary at Briton Bay.
Surrounding Pontneddfechan are the beautiful caves and waterfalls of the Neath valley. Dinas Rock, at Craig-y-Dinas, is a hot spot for rock-climbers as it gives the most daring a chance to climb a steep incline. Indeed the whole area is known as "waterfall country" and has become a centre for activity holidays and extreme sports. It seems many are unable to walk past a bubbling stream, a raging torrent or cascading waterfall without giving in to the urge to plunge into the clear waters. Caution should be taken, though, as the caves and waterfalls can become very dangerous in wet weather.
