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.
Place rather pretty but big disappointment for the price paid of 5000F per person ... While no path is marked, at the top you are also asked to pay half a word for the visit. Tip: Don't pay and walk up to the military barrier and then go back down.
