Cynon Valley (Welsh: Cwm Cynon) is an ex-mining Valley next to the Rhondda in Wales, in the South Wales Valleys area.

From 1974 to 1996 the area was one of the districts of Wales, formed from the Aberdare and Mountain Ash urban districts, and part of Neath Rural District, along with the parish of Penderyn from Brecknockshire.

In 1996 the area became part of the county borough of Rhondda Cynon Taf.

The Cynon Valley name continues in use in the name of the Cynon Valley Westminster constituency, created in 1983, and in the name of the Cynon Valley Welsh Assembly constituency, created in 1999.

The Cynon Valley (Welsh: Cwm Cynon) was a Welsh speaking valley up until the 19th Century.
