Treherbert is a village situated at the head of the Rhondda Fawr valley in south-east Wales, UK.

As you enter the area from the direction of Treorchy you view the mountain of Pen Pych. Pen Pych is one of the best examples of a table-top mountain in the world.

On the left hand side of Pen Pych you find the village of Blaencwm and on its right is Blaenrhondda. At the base of the mountain is the village of Tynewydd, Treherbert and Penyrenglyn.

Treherbert is the end-of-the-line for the Taff Vale Railway. Prior to the Dr Beeching plans in the 1960s the railway line continued from Treherbert through Tynewydd up to Blaencwm. The station at Tynewydd was called 'Blaenrhondda Station' even though it was in Tynewydd. From here it turns left at Pen Pych into Blaencwm. Here it desended into a tunnel through a mountain in Blaencwm and came out at Blaengwnfi in the nearby valley. Residents would often catch this train for a day out at Aberavon. It was often spoken that the best way to solve a cough was to put your head out of the train while it travelled through the mountain! Apparently the coal steam would help! The journey would take approximately 8 minutes.

The main road out of Treherbert is via the Rhigos Mountain Road, like other roads in the area it is often referred to as the 'New Road'.

During the early 21st century a lot of the 'old' Treherbert was demolished. Buildings that disappeared were: Treherbert Hospital, Treherbert Police Station, Dunraven School (Tynewydd), Blaencwm School, Blaenrhondda School, Penyrenglyn Infants and Junior School, Treherbert Infants School and Libanus Chapel.
