This exciting, raucous annual event is celebrated in most Mamprusi communities across the region in remembrance of an old legend.
Built in the 1700s by a legendary Mamprusi king to defend the capital of Nalerigu against raiders.
This beautiful point along the Gambaga Scarp looks out over the White Volta River and is the site of ancient rock carvings and paintings.
Just north of Gambaga, the massive White Volta roars as it squeezes through rocks.
The chief’s palace in Nalerigu, the traditional seat of the overlord of Mamprugu is a center of cultural activities in the region.
Held every six days, thousands come from all over to trade goods and livestock in the region’s largest market.
