Udi hill is also referred to as the Ugwueme and Udi hills. These hills are known to rise hundreds of metres above sea level. In 1915, Udi hill was the site of the first coal mine to be opened in Nigeria. It was eventually closed two years later but replaced with the Iva Valley mine. At the time when the mine was in full operations, Enugu was reputed to be the only significant producer of coal in the West African sub-region. Today, the tunnels beneath the hills where coals were mined are now tourist attractions, playing hosts to visitors from all over the world. So if you’ll love to see what a coal mine looks like, then Enugu is the way to go. Either you are climbing the hill or exploring the mine tunnels, the Udi experience is such a beautiful one you are not likely to forget in a hurry.
