Mount Afadja. Mount Afadja the highest mountains in Ghana standing at an elevation of 885 metres (2,904 ft). ‘Afadja’ is the name of the mountain whereas ‘to’ in the Ewe, dialect means mountain, therefore, it is called ‘Afadjato’ by the indigenes. The correct name would be ‘Mount Afadja’ as ‘Mount Afadjato’ will be a repetition of the ‘Mountain.’ Water low from the falls is reduced in the dry season, but it is beautiful year-round. The falls hike is mostly shaded. Butterflies are most abundant during the dry season (October-March). Mt. Afadjato has little shade so it is best hiked in the early morning or late afternoon.
Wli WaterfallsWli Waterfalls (pronounced ‘vlee’), also called Agumatsa Falls- meaning, “Allow Me to Flow.” is a popular and dramatic tourist site near the village of Wli not far from the Togo border. The Wli waterfalls are the highest waterfall in West Africa. Most tourist makes the easy walk to the lower falls, which is mostly a flat trail but stunning and beautiful in setting, made even more dramatic by the presence of thousands of fruit bats nesting high up on the nearby cliffs.
However, the equally high and much more isolated upper falls is a special treat for those with the stamina for the challenging hike. The falls are most impressive from April to October when you can hear – and feel – the flow of water thundering down as it plunges down directly before collecting into a large pool below, exactly at the foot of the mountain. The hike to the upper falls is normally too slippery and treacherous during the rainiest months.
