Farin Ruwa Falls is a waterfall found in the central region of Nigeria. It is among the highest waterfalls in Africa. It is significant among Africa's falls when the total height covered by the waterfall is considered.
The source of Farin Ruwa falls is found on the Nasarawa State, from whence it gushes down over the edge of the Nasarawa. During its descent from the Jos Plateau, the water drops a total height of about 150 metres (492 ft).
This drop is higher compared to the more popular Victoria Falls, which drops a height of around 108 metres (354 ft) during its descent.
The fall was discovered by a British colonial master in 1950's and the got it's name from the smoky and white nature of the water.
Farin means white while Ruwa is water. Farin Ruwa Waterfall can be translated to mean White Water Waterfalls.
It is a beautiful sight to see.
