Iyake Hanging Lake, Ado-Awaye, Oyo State

Iyake Lake is the only recognized suspended/hanging lake in Africa , one of the only two in the world after the Hanging Lake in Colorado. It has been named as one of the fascinating sites to visit in Nigeria as well as one of the seven wonders of Nigeria. It is said to be bottomless and have swallowed those who have tried to measure its depth. 

It takes about an hour to reach the peak of the rock where the lake rests. The water in the lake has maintained the same greenish color and same level several years. No one knows the depth and it’s obviously not much has been done to offer any scientific explanation as to the origin of the lake. A staircase of about 365 steps starts the journey to the mountain before tourists are left to do hiking where the steps end to get to their destination.
