More info about Enugu
Located in the southeast of the country and covering an area of approximately 8,730km2, Enugu stretches from the states of Kogi and Benue to the north, Ebonyi to the east, Abia and Imo to the south and Anambra to the west.
Meaning "top of the hill" and nicknamed "the Coal City" in the early 1900s, Enugu became a major mining center when coal was discovered by Albert Kitson. The Biafran war brought widespread devastation and production was severely hampered by equipment damage and destruction. Nowadays, only small quantities of coal are railed to Port Harcourt for export. A visit to the coal mines can be a most interesting outing.
Enugu is a geographically diverse region. Its physical features change gradually from tropical rain forest to open wood-land and then to Savannah. Apart from a chain of low hills, the rest of the state is predominantly low land divided by several streams and small rivers.
