IYAKE INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL 2023 INTRODUCTION

Iyake Suspended Lake is a mystical, emotional,  medicinal and spiritual water body atop Ado Hill. The marvelous lake took it's name from a crying mother, who for being barren, was reported to have drowned in the Lake.

The Lake which is the only natural suspended in the world is the mother of other attractions on Ado Hill. In contemporary society, festival tourism is becoming increasingly popular as a new form of tourist activities.

Festival tourism is a powerful economic force that generates employment, foreign exchange, tax revenue and facilitates social development, Iyake Suspended Lake is a great asset to us in Africa and it's my pleasure to introduce you to the annual Iyake International festival celebration of wonders of Africa only natural suspended Lake.
