Follow good footpaths around the western side of this beautiful lake in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Llangorse is the largest natural lake in Wales and a must see of the region. It is located near to the town of Brecon and the village of Llangors.
The walk starts at the northern end of the lake where parking is available. You then follow waymarked public footpaths through the pretty countryside to a lakeside viewpoint at Llangasty. The lake is surrounded by some lovely scenery with green hills, fields and meadows. The area is also a nature reserve so look out for a variety of wildlife on your walk. These include otters, water voles, coots, swallows, swifts and geese. Also of interest is the Crannog - an ancient man-made island of oak, willow and hazel wood.
If you would like to continue your walking in the area then the Taff Trail is located nearby. You can pick it up in Talybont on Usk where you can also enjoy a riverside walk along the Usk Valley Walk.
Running just to the south east of the site is the Brecon Beacons Way. The epic long distance trail is a great way of exploring the national park on foot.
