Best attractions to visit in Akosombo

1. Lake Volta - Akosombo

Lake Volta

Lake Volta is an artificial lake that was created after the construction of the Akosombo Dam in Ghana. Towards the north of the lake is located the small town of Yapei while Akosombo Dam is situated to the south of the river that flows downstream from Yapei. Before the construction of the dam, two rivers known as the White and Black Volta river converged at the middle part of the reservoir, forming a single Volta river. The present artificial Lake Volta is formed by the waters flowing out of the Akosombo dam's spillways and powerhouse towards the Atlantic Ocean. Lake Volta is considered one of the most beautiful tourist spots in Africa. It is the largest artificial lake by land area in the world. Viewing sky blue water surrounded by lush green vegetation is a great feast to the eyes. The area consists of both leveled plains and elevated hilly areas offering picturesque places for visitors to have a picnic. Konkori and Gambaga Scarps located to the west and north of the artificial lake also serve as an interesting tourist's location. Visitors can enjoy taking cruise tours of the place that offer plenty of fun and excitement. Overall, this is a great tourist spot where visitors can appreciate the calm and beauty of nature.
