List of Top Waterfalls in Ghana
Ghana is a tourism hub filled with numerous attractions and fantastic landscapes, and let us not forget the perfect weather. Out of all the attractions, our waterfalls have the most visits.
Four popular waterfall destinations and a few unpopular ones are scattered throughout the country. So what are these top waterfalls, and why are they so popular among visitors and indigenes?
Read about them below;
Wli Agumatsa Waterfalls
If Agumatsa doesn’t top the list, what will? This is the highest waterfall in Ghana and the tallest in West Africa. A sight.
The fall is located at Hohoe in the Volta Region. The waterfall is Agumatsa, meaning “allow me to flow.” The wildlife sanctuary by the fall offers a chance to see a larger colony of wild fruit bats, and it’s the scenery, together with the waterfall, is nothing short of magnificence.
Being under water falling from 80 meters above your head is the best and only massage you need to relax.
Boti is another favorite. It is not as tall as Agumatsa, but its uniqueness is that it is a twin waterfall. They are known to be male and female.
Boti is located in the Yilo Krobo district and takes its course from river Ponmpono, 17km northeast of Koforidua. Thirty meters above your head is still far enough for pure bliss. The Umbrella rock is close to the waterfall, which means more fun and adventure.
The cascading waterfall is located in the Bono East Region. It takes its course from Pumpum river, a tributary of the Black Volta and situated after Falls Rest Stop on the Kintampo- Tamale highway. A canopy walk was also built in 2019 to enhance a new visitor experience.
Tagbo falls 60 meters high, located in Liati Wote in the Volta Region. The fall is not far from Afadja mountain. An ideal place to cool off after the climb.
Less popular waterfalls in Ghana include Ote falls, located at Amedzofe in Volta, and Adom Waterfalls in the Eastern Region.
These waterfalls as tourist attractions generate revenue for the country. However, the caretakers and relevant stakeholders need to take the necessary steps to develop the areas to enhance visitors’ experience further.
Some waterfall locations need a better changing area and barely any proper chairs to sit on. But an entrance fee is taken before visitors are allowed into these areas.
These are places for relaxation and should be treated as such. The next time you visit any waterfalls and have a bad experience, let the caretakers know about it.
