Obudu Mountain Resort is an extraordinary mountain with mysterious features. Some of the natural attractions you see on the mountain cannot be seen anywhere in Nigeria or the world at large. The weather condition there is unpredictable it changes every time. It can be sunny now, next minute the clouds start to drop, next minute it’s drizzling, next minute it’s so misty you can’t see. It’s generally cold all the time.

The Obudu mountain resort has attractions ranging from a mini waterfall, tree house, canopy walkway, natural swimming pool, cable cab, etc. Of all these attractions, there is one that stands out and it is called the Holy Mountain. The holy mountain was discovered many years ago by the missionaries that go there for prayers.

A lot of things have been said about the holy mountain. Some believe especially the locals that praying on the mountain is the easiest way to hear from God. They also believe that all prayers and supplication rendered on the mountain will be answered. Rumour has it that when the former president of Nigeria, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, won the 2011 presidential election, he ran to the Holy Mountain, Obudu mountain resort. I guess for prayers, Thanksgiving or something similar to that.

What to do

Generally, the Obudu Mountain Resort is a perfect place for vacationers and tourists. The holy mountain is not like any other mountain, there are some specific things tourists can do there to enhance their experience.

Prayer

Like as early stated, the holy mountain is a place to pray as many believe all prayers are answered. BBNaija star, Tboss, was in Obudu Mountain Resort couple of months ago for a movie shoot. In one of the days she was not scheduled to film, she decided to have a date with God. From the experience she shared on her Instagram, she said she saw something in Celestial form. It was in the form of The Blessed Virgin Mary and heaven gate and pathway. She was glad to send her prayers to God.

Quiet time

Where else would you like to have a quiet time if not at the Holy Mountain? The place is quiet, calm and can allow you to concentrate. Nollywood actress, Nancy Isime, said, I decided to (with the help of a tour guide) go up the “Holy Mountain” for some Me time. The best I’ve had in a long time!

Sightseeing

Apart from the religious activities and quiet time, the next thing tourist can do at the Holy Mountain is sightseeing. The holy mountain is unarguably the perfect place to see Obudu and its beauty. You can see the Nigeria and Cameroon border very clear from the mountain. You can also see how the mini waterfall descends from the source.  These and more like bird watching are the things one can do on the mountain.

She started by narrating how they told her about the wonders of the holy mountain and what the villages (the residents of Obudu) believe about the mountain. She was told that God answers prayers on the mountain and as a believer she has to go and pour her out her heart to God. It was a mind-blowing experience as she thanked the movie producer for counting her worthy to be among the movie casts.

Up on the Holy Mountain in Obudu cattle ranch. We were told that the Locals believe that prayers are answered here so, of course, we had to come up here and offer our prayers & supplications to God and ohhh what a Beautiful Out of this world experience it was.

I have a confession. Whilst we were up here on the Holy mountain, I had an Encounter. Yes, I did! I saw something. I have NO idea what it was but it was a Celestial form. It was in the form of The Blessed Virgin Mary & it was gorgeous. The crazy thing is I could see it perfectly but no one else could! Like yoooo, it’s right there how can you not see it? 😇 .

Anyways, we, yes we @simplysorrentino did see some sort of Heaven’s pathway & gate l kid you not & some sort of form like a Guard at the gate up in the cloud on this Holy mountain. I know I know it sounds unbelievable but it is True. I believe in God, I mean my life is a living testimony of his love & existence & so I just had to share my beautiful encounter with Y’all.

I’m just so Blessed to have had the opportunity to send up my prayers straight into Heaven. May God bless us all & show himself to us. #HappyGrindinglovers #OMAMBALATheMovie #lifeofanactor #passion Ps: the photos of me went from posing to can you see that?
