Boti Falls is located just 17km North-east of Koforidua, the Eastern regional capital. For those interested in how soon it takes to get there, it is just over 30 minutes' drive from Koforidua and over 90 minutes from Accra depending on your means of transportation. River Pawnpawn which forms the falls takes its source from Ahenkwa-Amalakpo before falling over an igneous rock outcrop at the Boti Langmase that is how the falls get its name. The fall was hidden in the forest until it was discovered by a white catholic priest. It is recounted by locals that the priest used the base of the falls as an entertainment ground for his friends and himself.
The land on which the falls is located is not without any controversy though. The Akyems of Tafo who were the original owners of the forest/land wanted it back. But it was realized later that the Tafohene had sold that piece of land to one Tetteh Nguo, a Krobo. It took a court settlement to bring the dispute to a closure.
This fall is neither the most spectacular nor the biggest in Ghana yet because President Kwame Nkrumah visited it and made a great deal out of it in the 1960s, it has its own pride of place on our list of attractions. It is always refreshing to be in the mountainous Eastern Region located just located above Greater Accra. Boti Falls is located just 17km north-east of Koforidua, the Eastern regional capital.
UMBRELLA ROCK -
The Umbrella Rock is a rock found at the site of the Boti falls in Yilo krobo district, Ghana. As the name implies, the overhang on the top is large enough to cover 12 to 15 people at once. Even though the pivot on which the top rock lies on might seem small, it's very strong.Yearly, many tourists travel to Boti Falls for its natural beauty and the umbrella rock is visible through much of the trek to the falls. Also, it is one of the backgrounds of the windows, so many people see it.
