Hidden but alluring: Fuller Falls at Kintampo
Located at some 7km west of Kintampo is the beautiful Fuller Falls with an estimate terrain elevation above seal level is 173 metres.
It falls gently from the east over a series of cascades along the Oyoko river at Yabraso in the Kintampo municipality in the Brong Ahafo Region.
The river flows into the Black Volta at the border between Brong Ahafo and the Northern Region at Dwire Kumboe.
The beautiful, spacious entrance of the scenery is a perfect place for rendezvous and reveling on any day.
The water falls provides tourists with a wonderful, peaceful, and a refreshing, cold pool surrounded with seats made of concrete and rocks where one can relax quietly and have a fair view of the falls.
The waterfalls was discovered by a Filipino missionary, Rev. FR. Joseph Panabang, in 1988 and was developed with the help of Adamu Amidu who was then a farmer along the river.
The place was kept as a prayer grounds and named “Our Lady of Kintampo Prayer Park ” where Father Panabang and people used to come for prayer sessions until he left Kintampo in 1998.
In 2001, in quest to give the site a facelift and attract many tourists, a private developer started building summer hats and other buildings at the site which was named after one Captain Fuller, a surveyor who plied his trade in Africa.
