Soothe Your Senses at Kpatawee Waterfall

Soothe Your Senses at Kpatawee Waterfall

The giant tree standing guard at the entrance to the lower waterfall, though imposing, feels as welcoming as the vibrant yellow flowers bordering the nearby rest area.  Evergreen trees and shrubs frame the rush of cool water crashing off brownish gray rocks carved into the hill rising above the entrance area.  Kpatawee waterfall is a 50 feet cliff of watery splendor.

Visitors to the Waterfall enjoy climbing into the waterfall and basking on the rocks as the sound of cascading water on rocks illuminates the mind into a serene place.  Many also enjoy swimming in the lagoon that forms a perfect pool at the bottom of the cliff.  Kpatawee is excellent escape for romance or just downtime, the adventurous visitor, or groups and families outings.

For daytrippers, bring your picnic items and everything you need for the day, as there are no places to shop nearby.  For overnight visitors, there are great camping opportunities around the waterfall.  The nearby townspeople are warm and friendly and go out of their to accommodate visitor to Kpatawee.

Driving there:  To get there from Monrovia, pass through the Red Light Market, through Careysburg, along the Kakata Highway into Bong County.  At the Phebe Hospital junction in Bong County, make a left and the road to Kpatawee is a straight drive into Kpatawee Station; however, we recommend at this junction you stop and ask for clear directions to Kpatawee.

Places to stay:  There are no overnight accommodation at Kpatawee Waterfall; however, in Gbarnga which is on the main highway, there are a few guest houses.
