I was interested in seeing a suspended lake. Very interesting. But I was also here for the uphill hike. I enjoy hiking. There were several other sightseers here who survived the hike.

Iyake suspended lake is said to be the only one in Africa and second in the world.
It is located at Ado-Awaye town;about 20mins drive from Iseyin in Oyo state,Nigeria.
The view of the lake at the top of Ado-Awaye mountains is mesmerizing.
You sure don’t want to miss this if you plan visiting Nigeria soon.

Beautiful place. It's a lovely hike up could get a bit tiring but it's doable for most levels of fitness... I would rate it an easy to moderate hike. The views from mid way and on top are very rewarding. We payed a local guide to go up it us. It would also be nice if the government took care of the dumpsite right next to the billboard

This really is a great place to see from a view point of view. Heck 600+ steps and then about 500 metres on top of the rock till you get to the suspended lake.

We had some local kids and two men take us around and show as about. The stories of the myths where very informative. The guides and the kids mad the trip fun - fantastic friendly folks.

I must say I am unfit and found this to be very hard work but the views were well worth it.

I do however think that the tourism department need to fix up the 500 broken steps and put some signposts up on the road so that you can find it...

Any one looking for a good workout with fantastic view this place gets top point. No payments but with the tour guides assisting recommend a good tip.

The major activity is climb the rock. There are few historical items to take not of while climbing but that's about it. The lake is beautiful though.

The hike was so hectic, I asked myself ‘who sent you’. But the beautiful scenery at the mountain top, and the magical Iyake lake overcompensated for the hassle. Definitely a must see!

Ado-awaye is not just a community with the mysterious suspended lake or amazing landscapes it itself and experience and embodiment of historical and cultural stories. My journey to the site was a bit rough but the experience on the mountain made up for it. The community people are friendly and the wonders are real, just come prepared to hike and sweat it out. Ado-awaye is a must for adventure lovers. It an amazing place to spend Christmas with family, friends and loved ones. I plan on visiting the place with friends on boxing day, interested in tagging along message me on twitter @smartalphabets

It was a lovely experience, I went with a team of hikers Ummah zone tourism and the tour guide on 27th October 2018. from 364 steps to the Elephant tree, Odo Iya alaro, Iyake lake (the suspended lake), agbomo fun iyake (the small foot print with water), Ese awon agba, ese kan aye, ese kan orun and the ancient palace on the rock. We spent 2 hours 30 minutes to get to the peak. Ado Awaye, Iseyin Local Government area of Oyo state is indeed lucky to have the second suspended lake in the world. i suggest the government will see reason to invest in this area part of which is required are signs and direction for easy access as there was nothing to show "this is the suspended lake" Thanks to the Tour guide. Brief history of the aforementioned (things to see on the rock), first aid stand and correct Amala joint. Hiking is actually a way to go and tourism can earn this country a good return on investment.

Ado Awaye is a must see! It is said that there are 2 suspended lakes in the world and Ado Awaye has one of them.

The view from the top is nothing short of beautiful and there are 7 wonders to be found as you make your way to the top.
