Kintampo waterfalls is one of the highest waterfalls in Ghana on the Kumasi–Tamale road.
There are 3 main attractions at this waterfall.

The waterfalls, one of the main natural attractions in the area, is formed by three (3) main drops where the longest drop measures 25 meters (82 ft) in height and after a number of steps, and cascades, the river falls about 70 meters (230 ft).
It is said that the volume of the water increases with more visitors’ presents. Basically, the louder the noise, the more the water falls.
We had to walk from one end of the waterfall (stage 1) to the other end (stage 3)

As much as I love adventures, I have a fear of heights, yet I’ll still go on adventures that involves heights.
Apart from the Lekki Conservation Centre, Kintampo is the second place that I’ve gone on a canopy walk. I’m not going to talk about one woman that kept shaking the rope of the walkway even though she knew I was scared #lipsealed.
You get to enjoy a breathtaking view of the forest area and waterfalls as you use the canopy walkway.
P.S: I wanted to share more pictures with you, but the pictures have refused to upload, hope you had fun reading through 🤗🤗
