If you follow our blog at all, you probably notice that we like hiking to the Escarpment at Nakpanduri. Recently, I went our exploring on my bicycle a few miles northwest of us and I found a great new hiking spot. The next day I brought the family and some of our European friends to check out the spot.
From there you get a great view of the White Volta at the point where it deviants from its north-to-south route and makes a sharp turn west. The best part though is that there is a hidden passage that allows you do climb down through the cliff and then on down into the lush forest on the northside. You can even continue hiking all the way the edge of the White Volta.
I expect we will be visiting this spot a lot more since it is so much closer than Nakpanduri.
