Swallow Falls, Wales!

When you visit the Snowdon  , while exploring the place you can also visit one of beautiful waterfalls of Wales, The Swallow Falls. Also known in Welsh as Rhaeadr Ewynnol, meaning “Foaming Waterfall”. However, the original name association The Swallow is maybe the earlier visitors thought the waterfall resembled the patterns of feathers on the back of a swallow.

It is the highest continuous waterfall in Wales and one of the most visited beauty spots in the area due to its accessibility. A local legend says that the spirit of Sir John Wynne the 1st Baronet (1553 – 1 March 1627) from nearby Gwyndir Castle at Llanrwst is trapped beneath Swallow Falls.

We need to pay a small fee for entering, I think it was around 1 pound and then you need to descend a few steps to view its beauty. You can head till the bottom of the stairs to view the flowing river.
