Walk to the Llanberis Waterfall Ceunant Mawr Details
The Walk to the Llanberis Waterfall of Rhaeadr Ceunant Mawr is one of those Llanberis walks that all the locals have walked at some point, and it’s well worth a 10 minute diversion for a quick look.
How do you get to the Llanberis waterfall? The Walk to the Llanberis waterfall map can be seen below (postcode -LL55 4TR ) and you can easily walk to the starting point from the village centre.
BE WARNED – one of the other top google searches for this walk provides a GPS route that appear to head over a cliff to these falls – while we think this is just sloppy gps plotting, just be wary.
1 Start the walk from the start of the Llanberis Path at the Victoria Terrace Bus stop. Head towards and under the viaduct of the Snowdon Railway and and keep left down the country lane.
2 Find the sign to the left of the lane that notes “to the waterfalls”. Continue on this track and continue beneath the Viaduct again.
3 The path now continues along the Afon Arddu for a few 100m and is well built if a bit rough.
4 The Rhaeadr Ceunant Mawr Falls are spectacular after heavy rain, and can be viewed from a safe viewing area. Do not be tempted to swim unless you know what you’re doing as the falls are a known killer and there have been numerous reported deaths at these Llanberis waterfalls.
