Ezeagu Tourist Complex is located southern central pan of Enugu State. The complex is known for being a premium destination for tourists and travellers. It is graced with a beautiful atmosphere as a result of its natural state. Measuring about 22 hectares, it is made up of a combination of a waterfall, a lake, and a three kilometres cave full with tunnels and chambers with natural spring.
The waterfall locally named Ezeagu Waterfall or Heneke Waterfall is a site that receives many pilgrims, as a result of the belief of it having a curative power. Ezeagu Waterfall’s height is about 23meters high, and therefore the waters rush from a cliff with a thunderous sound that can be heard from a distance.
One marvellous wonder of Ezeagu Waterfall is its ability to signal the beginning of the harmattan season through an extraordinary thunderous sound from the fall. Its brilliance is expressed in its about 5-kilometer long Obinofia Cave whose sheer size, compartments and tunnels branching out into several directions is naturally a beauty to behold. Be sure to walk deep in the cave into utter darkness; as scary and creepy as this may seem, its sure to be a lot of fun.
