2239 GUINEA (Faranah) - Tinkisso dam and waterfall
Dabola, the gateway to Upper Guinea, is a peaceful town, lined with mango trees and framed by hills. At 8km west of town is Tinkisso dam, which supplies electricity to the region. There’s a popular picnic area at the bottom of the dam and, across the stream, there’s a beach and a small waterfall. Tinkisso River is sourced near Dabola in the Fouta Djallon mountain range, and snakes 400km until it runs into the River Niger at Siguiri.
