I’ve hiked this mountain on Saturday 12/29/18. This is the highest mountain in Togo 🇹🇬986m, higher than its nearby neighbor Mount Afadja of Ghana (883m) 🇬🇭. I drove from Lomé( Capital) to the base of the mountain; there you can purchased the permit/entrance ticket allowing you to visit the summit pass the military guard unquestioned. Tourists pay 5,000f cfa while locals/ citizens pay 2000f cfa. Tickets can be purchased upon arrival at the entrance located on the south-side of the mountain. You do not need a guide! The fire road/ main road takes you all the way to the summit. You can drive or hike all the way to the summit just by following this road. I repeat, you do not need a guide for this hike( save your money). Pretty straight forward hike. I parked my car in the Kebo-Dalave village then hiked from there; clocking in at 10km to the summit (20km/ 12mi Round trip). Bring at least 3L of water, snacks, hat and start early to avoid the mid-day heat. Very fun hike, nice view of the valley on clear days. the Village folks are very friendly so are the military guards at the top.
Exceptional visit during a visit to Togo. The ascent and descent in feet equals 24km for a hike during 6 hours of time. 🤩J' was able to observe nature in its diversity. It was an unforgettable experience
