Kurra Falls  Tourist attraction

The Kurra falls is located in an area of magnificent scenery some 77 kilometers southeast of Jos. It is a beautiful area of hills and lakes ideal for boating, camping and rock climbing. This resulted from the activities of tin mining in the area.  It is also the location of the state's first hydroelectric power station. The Kurra falls lies to the east of Barkin-Ladi along the Jos-Pankshin road.

The kurra falls themselves can only be seen in the wet season when there is plenty of water, as they do not exist in the dry season. However, the surrounding is very scenic in the dry season and is a pleasant picnic or camping spot. The author camped there in 1980, and greatly enjoyed the splendid views of typical ‘Scottish’ scenery with hills, lakes and moors.
 The area is the property of NESCO, an electrical company whose head office is in Bukuru, near Jos, the Kurra falls area is very attractive, has fine walks and a variety of birdlife. If you have time during a visit to Jos, do not miss this day’s outing.
