One of Llanberis' best hidden gems is Ceunant Mawr Waterfall. If you can find the lower trail under the bridge, then follow the stream and you will see differing levels of water drops, until you reach the large fall itself. We recommend wearing good footwear too.
Ceunant Mawr is a lovely hidden waterfall not too far away from Llanberris village. There is a gorgeous lower river part we definitely recommend checking out, as it's a small waterfall halfway up and then a very tall waterfall which plunges into a pool!
Ceunant Mawr is a little hidden gem so close to the centre. An easy walk with a very interesting railway bridge with fantastic brick work in the arch over the road. – Google Review
It's worth the short walk (around 15 minutes) to get to the top of the waterfall and a must-do if you're here. However when you're at the top, you have to cross the railroad tracks to get a good view but there's no need to panic as there's safe space to avoid the train whilst you're up there!
