Farin Ruwa Waterfall: A Natural Beauty With Magnificent Work Of Nature

Farin Ruwa waterfalls, discovered by colonialists in the 1950s, is a spectacular waterfall located 120 kilometers from Lafia, the capital city of Nasarawa State, 30 kilometers from Wamba, the local government headquarters, and 160 kilometers from Abuja, Nigeria’s federal capital.

The waterfall is located in Nasarawa State’s Wamba Local Government Area, just between the Bokkos and Wamba local council areas of Plateau and Nasarawa States, respectively.

The Nasarawa state government is investing millions of dollars to develop the waterfall to international tourism standards, including the construction of chalets and a hotel complex, a golf course, water and amusement parks, and other recreational facilities that will draw thousands of tourists.

When completed, the waterfall will become Nigeria’s most popular tourist attraction, putting Nasarawa State on the global tourism map and transforming the country into a major tourist destination.

It is a genuinely stunning work of nature with its high level falls that are approximately 150 meters high and 50 meters broad, making it incomparable to other waterfalls in Nigeria.
