This is one of the very first locations we went to, with the idea of building NatureFlip and getting as much information as possible... and not to mention, photos!

Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales, UK is one of the most beautiful places I ever explored. "Jungle" like forests, streams and waterfalls, mountains and wildlife, this is what this paradise has to offer. Only 4 hours from London, this national park is an ideal place for a weekend escape (exactly what we did).

The first day was dedicated to discovering the waterfalls hidden in the "exotic" forest. I still keep thinking about it as exotic, as we truly felt like we were jungle explorers. The photos will speak for themselves.

There are many hiking trails along the streams and waterfalls, but terrain may prove dangerous in some places. Some of these areas are not particularly family friendly.

This place had at least 5 different waterfall drops and I almost got myself in the water to capture a low-level angle
