Nigerians spend millions of Naira on vacations in foreign countries, not counting the hassle of travel arrangements. Most of these countries granted are beautiful . But there are still locations right here in Nigeria that will make your jaw drop to the ground .
There are only two known hanging lakes in the world . There is the hanging lake in Colorado, the United States and the Awaye Lake in Oyo state . Save a lot of money and explore this beautiful location . The experience will change your life and make you appreciate Nigeria more .

Things to expect
To get to Ado Awaye from Ibadan takes about two hours . This journey is for those who seek the thrills of outdoor, travel and discovering new places no matter how gruelling .
The Oyo people are friendly . Do not find it unusual when they stare at you bemusedly . Perhaps , it will be because of the dialect which you speak, that is if you speak Yoruba .
Then there is the hike to the top of the hill. It takes about an hour to reach the crest of rocks where the lake lies . The trail is rocky . You are advised to wear comfortable shoes and you will need to carry some drinking water in case you get thirsty .
On the summit , you will see the expanse of hills overlooking the Benin Republic Border. You would also see what appears to be large footprints etched on the rock . The myth is that they are the footprints of their ancestors .
The lake is indeed a wonder because one cannot explain the mystery behind the source of the lake or why it doesn ’t go dry . The locals say that it retains the same level of water all season .
This unforgettable place is better experienced than told . And please , don’t forget to buy a souvenir while you are in Oyo state .

Great! I once travelled to Calabar, Qua, and Obudu and I know that we have gold tourist sites here. We go on vacation abroad to breathe 'snow- air'. grin
