For those interested in the underground ...
... there are fantastic opportunities for the experienced caver to be challenged whilst those who want to try a one-off caving experience can book one of the many accredited guides in the area.
The Brecon Beacons boasts one of Britain's third longest caves, Ogof Ffynnon Ddu. OFD (as it is commonly known) is also Britain's deepest at 308m deep. The area also has Porth yr ogof - the largest cave entrance in Wales and one of the largest anywhere in the United Kingdom. This spectacular entrance can be admired by anyone but the general public should not be tempted in without an experienced guide.
On the Llangattock Escarpment, in the east of the Park, over 12 miles of passages can be accessed and The Clydach Gorge also has numerous cave passages.
Information on access to these caves can be obtained from the South Wales Caving Club's website (www.swcc.org.uk)
The National Show Caves at Dan yr Ogof are an opportunity for the whole family to experience some of the most dramatic caving systems in the Park.
