Gorge Walking, Gorge Scrambling, Canyoning, Ghyll Scrambling near Cardiff, Swansea and South Wales: The rain has at last calmed down, the rivers are still very high all over the region and the waterfalls are definitely in full flow. The good news is that the rivers are on the acceptable level to conduct the activities on both the Mellte and the Sychryd Gorges, the closest areas to Cardiff and Swansea for Canyoning and Gorge Walking. The weather is cold though and the rivers are always cold. So make sure you have the right protective clothing and the right 1st aid and evacuation protocals in place in case of any accidents, slips, trips or falls. In all honesty you should really be with an expert guide or instructor, especially this time of year and with the water levels so high.
