Mrs Ofosu-Adjare made the call on Thursday at the Kintampo Waterfalls in the Brong-Ahafo Region to mark the end of a two-day familiarisation tour.

She said tourist attractions like the waterfalls could be developed into a modern ?must go natural site scenery?.

The 230-foot waterfall is situated at a serene forest environment.

Nana Effah Guakro, Chief of Kyeremankoma in the Kintampo Municipality, said transformation of the facility to meet international tourist sites standards is long overdue.

Mrs Ofosu-Adjare also visited the Tanoboase Sacred Grove in the Techiman North District, where she said the Ministry would provide support to protect and maintain the place as natural eco-tourism site.

Nana Adomako Acheampong, ?the right wing chief? of Tanoboase explained that the Grove, situated in ?a 300-acre virgin forest? was discovered by their ancestors in the 16th century.

He said no part of it had ever been tilled because that is a taboo in the community.

He said a major challenge in the maintenance of the forest is the activities of poachers who are disturbing the wildlife habitat.
