Taking in the Sites


I recently biked 34 kilometers round trip with two other volunteers to visit two of Burkina Faso’s natural attractions, the Domes Fabadougou and the Cascades.

I’m personally not a huge fan of biking and mostly trailed behind on the way out and back but it made a good opportunity for me to snap some action shots.

At the Domes of Fabadougou we had some good views of the surrounding area after taking a short climb. Though the Domes were nice, I’m still more partial to the peaks, with its sharper inclines and slightly more dangerous climbs, the domes still made for a good time.

A few kilometers later we took a dip in the Cascades. Down an entire mountain side the water tumbles and pools at irregular intervals. Some spots are deep enough to swim in, and plenty of tourist and Burkinabe alike take part.

Though the biking down and back was quite tiring the round drip was well worth it to see these natural attractions.
