The primeval scenery of Akan is a work of art.

River Walk: Explore Akan River

Many rivers flow into Lake Akan, but only one river flows out: the Akan River. This river and the primeval forest surrounding it are an important ecosystem home to a diverse range of flora and fauna. As you walk through the forest, you'll hear the rustling of leaves, the song of birds, and then later on the rush of the river. You might even hear fish swimming past you! Even the ground has a sound of its own in this hot spring area. (You will be given a pair of waders so that you can walk through the river and enjoy the rhythmic splashing of your footsteps.)
