Light is only from 8am to 9am and from 7pm to 10pm. No cooking gas in the kitchen. We arrived and there was no water. He had to beg management to get some buckets of water for the first night. We arrived at 3pm(less than 10 visitors in the structure) and the accommodation was dirty. We asked to send someone... More

It was horrible. It was a big mistake. They put on the the generator 7am to 10am in the morning and 7pm to 10pm. There really wasn't much to do. In the restaurant they had just two meals everyday. No choice to eat whatever you wanted. It just wasn't it.

I spent 5 nights here, it was peaceful and quiet. You are sure to enjoy breath-taking views from the cable cars or just hiking. The locals were wonderful tour guides. Phone reception and internet connection were poor, so you can actually get 'lost'. If you are going with a family or in group of 3 couples, i recommend leasing a... More

This resort is run down. but a lovely cool place with wonderful views when no fog/mist. the canopy walk way in their protected forest valley area is not to be missed. For Nigeria accomodation for the independent traveler is pretty good at Abebes £16 or £28 for a room. but don't expect western standards. Hot water for bathing is available... More

The resort is what to talk about because you feel happy after you might have left the place. It was wonderful site seeing for cable car rides from the base to the top of the plateau. it gave me a scenic view while bypassing the extremely winding road to the top in the cable car. The weather condition there changes... More
