Discover Gbarpolu County
In the northwestern part of Liberia, Gbarpolu County, established in 2003, is the newest of Liberia's fifteen counties. Gbarpolu County has several gold and diamond mines, and the county's flag illustrates its mining past and present with a diamond. Nature lovers will be captivated by the stunning landscapes of Gbarpolu County, which boasts a diverse array of wildlife, pristine forests, and scenic waterfalls.
The county shares part of the Gola Forest, one of the region's largest remaining areas of seasonal dense moist evergreen and semi-deciduous forest. The upgrade of the Gola Forest from National Forest to National Park in 2014 significantly increased its level of protection. Once the Gola National Park was established, the park linked the forest to the Gola Rainforest National Park in Sierra Leone.
