The hill, which is barely 10 square kilometres, has 13 springs namely Kyatuka, Kiwani, Kalesi and Mola/Kathanze springs, Ngieni Wasua, Mutaitho, Kaunzuu, Nyekini, Miinyeni and Makilita springs, with each capable of filling a river with water. The springs form a beautiful waterfall, approximately 10 metres high, before returning the same water to where it came from beneath the hill. The springs decorate Nuu Hill by forming what resembles a golden mayoral chain. From a distance, the springs look like pieces of diamond pinned around the hill. It is a beautiful sight to behold.
