Obudu Mountain Resort formerly known as Obudu Cattle Ranch is a tourist attraction in Cross River state. It is filled with mountain ranges, water falls and wild life. The resort is located on the Obudu plateaus at 1576 metres above sea level on the Oshie Ridge of the Sankwala Mountains in the north-east region of Cross River state and is close to the Cameroon border. The temperate climate offers a total contrast and welcome respite from Africa’s tropical heat. Idyllic tranquillity, beautiful scenery and breath taking views make it ideal for the lone adventurer, families on reunion, young couples or a holiday group.
It was developed by Mr Mccaughley in 1951 and although the resort has been through troubles since, it has very recently been rehabilitated to its former glory. A recently added cable car from the base to the top of the plateau gives visitors a scenic view while bypassing the extremely winding road to the top. This has turned the ranch into one of the well known holiday and tourist resorts in Nigeria.
