Obudu is one place you will love to wake up to see a whole new world. From walking in the clouds to hearing sonorous sounds of the birds: the feeling is just awesome and simply irresistible. Anyways, glad that you are able to survive the cold of the night; thanks to the room warmer installed in every room to keep you warm. Obudu mountain resort is one place where you do not have air conditioners installed in the rooms - hope this sends a message.
Its a bright, beautiful and cold morning, you definitely should take a walk around and appreciate the beauty of nature. The gym is open from 6.30am, you may choose to have some work-out or just gaze as the beautiful birds hop from one tree to another, in excitement of your presence.
Depending on what part of the resort you are staying, it may just be ideal for you to take a seat at the Steak house restaurant for breakfast. You may want to get back to your room and freshen up before coming for breakfast, the choice is entirely up to you. Its an unusual place, so don't bother about taking unusual cause of action, just enjoy the moment and be you.

Be warned not to leave anything hanging on you as you may NEVER recover it again if it falls into the forest beneath you.
You may get scared at first but never mind, you should get a grip on the supporting guard to give you some confidence after a few steps. You can spend as much time as you may wish appreciating nature and definitely, the experience keeps you wondering - WHY!!
As you finish from the nature reserve its time to take a trip to the Holy Mountain. From the Holy Mountains, you can catch a glimpse of the Cameroon border. There is also a waterfall around there, where you definitely would want to spend some time.
When you get back, you will have the rest of the evening to yourself. You may choose to spend some time at the Grotto - a natural swimming pool, just incase you didn't have enough time to unravel the waterpark.
