The 13th edition of the Seven Wonders of Nigeria was hosted live for the first time from Calabar, Cross River State and it featured Popular travel expert and blogger Omotoke Fatoki who has been to all 36 states in Nigeria.
Her passion for local tourism in Nigeria led her to tour all states as a solo traveler challenging the negative narrative.
She spoke about her book ‘101 travel destinations’ which she launched a few months ago, her first destination was Taraba State which she said has over 25 attractions like the Mambilla Plateau which has an average elevation of about 1,600 metres above sea level, making it the highest plateau in Nigeria.
The state is also blessed with beautiful tea farms in Gembu and the Gashaka-Gumti National Park. She expressed her displeasures with the security issues, bad roads and the lack of variety for food.
Alarinka’s second destination was Nasarawa state where she said she saw the best and most beautiful waterfall, the Farin Ruwa waterfalls located in Wamba Local Government which she feels should be a top destination in Nigeria but isn’t due to security and accessibility issues.
Her last and final destination was the Lamurde Hot springs Located in Adamawa state, unfortunately she couldn’t tell us more of her experience at the hot springs due to some technical issues but hopefully we’ll get to hear from the well travelled Alarinka again.
