Nigeria boasts of one of world’s wonders in Iyake Lake – the only recognized suspended/hanging lake in Africa.
There are only two of such in the world. The other one is the Hanging Lake in Colorado.
Iyake lake is one of the seven wonders of Nigeria and one of many wonders of our ecosystem.
It is said to be bottomless and has the capacity swallow anyone who tries to measure its depth.
It is reported (not fully confirmed though) that whoever enters the lake never comes out of it.
The lake is the main god of fertility of the Mountain.
Residents say there is another world that looks like the earth beneath the lake.
He who transits into that world by diving into the lake will never be able to return to our own world again.
Another wonder around the same area is Agbómofúnyàké literally means “collects child and gives to iyake”.
This is a little hole located by the Iyake lake. It is believed that, whenever the hole has water in it, whoever puts his leg into it gets dragged to the bottom of iyake lake.
