Awhum Waterfall and Cave, Enugu


Adventure and Fun

Situated around 24 kilometres from Enugu, near the Awhum Monastery, in Amaugwe village, Awhum town, is the Awhum Waterfall and Cave. The water cascades over an outcrop of granite where it then forms a stream. Lining the stream are several caves.

The waterfall is 30 metres high and is said to have healing powers and the capability of dispelling satanic or evil forces. A section of the waterfall stays warm throughout the seasons. For these reasons the falls have become a place of Christian pilgrimage and a prayer centre.

Awhum is a valley town surrounded by rolling grassy hills, valleys and caves. The caves in particular make Awhum's beauty unique.

The waterfall and cave are a 45 minute walk from the car park.
