This is one of the most peaceful surroundings where one can walk, sit, bbq and rest. Not a lot of noise, clean air and beautiful surroundings.

If you in Nigeria Abuja and you want to have an hiking experience, this is the absolute best place, the view is amazing and the whole serene is beautiful. To take dope pictures you have to climb to the very top 😉😘

Used to be an idyllic well kept secret Nest abuja. Is now taken over by civilisation and careless pollution. Is a pity, however, still worth to visit

The dam itself is a wonderful sight, the guys manning the two check point gates begging for money was the downside.

It is an ideal place for family trips and picnics with friends. It provides such serenity and a heightened sense of privacy from the hustle and bustle and automobile filled life in Abuja. Of course one has to carry their food items and other needs...More

Been here few years ago but decided to revisit with friends. Great for picnics, off the road and best to arrive with car except you don't mind taking a bike. Would definitely visit again

At first I said hell no I'm not going to such place, but later decided to go, it was all fun and will like a repeat of the visit. The hiking to the top was amazing, it was a wonderful experience.

The site has lots of potentials to attract tourists if properly managed by a tour agency. Obstructive presence of security agents could be a big disincentive to first time visitors. For lovers of nature and the great outdoor, it is a must see.
