Take an evening shot, in lowlight, when the ISO values of your camera permit some really beautiful photos. The Biu P Best Features It is a great place for nature lovers and people who do not fancy the conventional definitions of tourism. It is really 'off the beaten path.' Writer's Review Whenever I visit the Biu Plateau, I always have a lump in my throat from the sheer beauty of nature. As Bukarusman puts it: "One thing I can never have too much of is the sheer pleasure of beholding the Biu landscape, especially the rock formations and the beautiful escarpments arising from the surrounding heights and surfaces of the plateau and plains. The landscape always has something new to offer to the viewer. It is not unusual for one piece of rock to call up different images at different times in the mind of the same onlooker. The landscape has an endless power of providing fresh viewing pleasure. The Biu plateau touches ground in a rather steep precipitous fashion at the southern end of the "table". Its opposite end evens out less slopingly. The wider ends of the plateau, to the east and west, possess escarpments naturally calibrated in steps. Several feet beneath, as you climb down the steps over the long stretch of land, you emerge into a sub-plateau many miles wide, a western "footstool" to the main Biu plateau. Stretching further along basins and hills, the plateau merges sublimely into the Hawal river, which itself empties into the Gongola and then on to the Benue river, the main tributary of River Niger. Viewed aerially and against the background of the surrounding grandeur of the Adamawa environment and the watery expanse of the river Gongola, Biu lures every visitor with its somewhat Edenic appeal." Most common visitors Expatriates in the north looking for something new, adventurous Nigerians and anyone who is looking for a great story to tell over the holidays. 'Would you look at that beast!' - My tour guide, when we came in view of the plateau.
