The highlands of the Volta region are remote, lush and cooler because of the altitude. The people see fewer visitors, so the interactions are more authentic.
At 885m, Mount Afadjato is the highest peak in Ghana. It forms part of the Agumatsa range which runs along the Ghana-Togo border. The difficult hike to the top is rewarded with magnificent panoramic views of surrounding communities, forests, and in the distance, Volta Lake.
Amedzofe, Biakpa and Logba Tota are three Volta villages that are nestled in the mountains that have a good infrastructure for visitors. A more recently developed village is Likpe Togome, just north of Wli Falls. At this location are ancestral caves, mountain hiking trails, and a soon-to-be-opened paragliding site.
