To the right (north) is the notch in the mountain in an area known as Chuli. The hills to the far right are those associated with the Bui Dam site. Boase area, 11 October, 1982.
Standing on the south bank of the Black Volta River near Bui village, looking east-northeast to the gap in the Banda hills where the Bui Dam was constructed after 2008. The area between Bui village and the river was the site of a 19th-century village, Bui Kataa (old Bui). This area was flooded by the rising waters of Bui Lake as it formed behind Bui Dam after 2012. Bui Village, 25 July, 1982.
