Afadjato is the highest mountain in Ghana, at an altitude of 885 metres. The mountain is located near the villages of Liati Wote and Gbledi, in the Volta Region at the border with Togo.
Afadjato can be ascended at a roughly 2 hours round trip, with great views. From the peak on a clear day you can enjoy views of surrounding mountains, valleys, forests, villages, and even Volta Lake.
800 meters doesn’t seem like much but the hike can be tiring in over 30◦C heat. In upper parts of the mountain there are no trees and no shadow. Make sure you take big bottle of drinking water with you. Avoid hiking on rainy day as the path can become slippery.
