The Mysterious Whistling Rocks Of Tongo

Tongo is a small town near Bolgatanga, the capital of the Upper East region. Meanwhile, Tongo is the capital of Talensi District, a district in the Upper East Region of the northern part of Ghana. Tongo is known for the Tengzug shrine, and for its sowing and harvest festivals.
Another visitor’s sight in the town is the Tongo Whistling Rocks. Located 10 kilometers (6 mi.) from Bolgatanga, these granite rocks jut dramatically from the terrain. The rocks also make a strange whistling sound during November and December, when the harmattan wind blows from the Sahara throughout the Northern Region.
