AVATIME HIGHLANDS EXPEDITION II

The Avatime Highlands have been touted as the highests points of human habitation in Ghana. We invite you, from September 14-15 to get your game face on, your adrenaline levels in top form, and your sense of adventure off the charts for this amazing weekend mountaineering expedition.

The one-night adventure starts with a 4-hour drive to the Hohoe Plains on Saturday, September 14 at 5AM from the Accra Mall and specifically to a village at the foot of the ranges named Nyangbo Kume. We’ll hike up the 581m mountain terrain to the village of Dzogbefeme where we’ll camp for the night. Dzogbefeme offers spectacular views of the Amedzofe and Gemi mountains.

After breakfast on Sunday, the second leg of the assault begins to Mt Gemi’s cross and the waterfall at Amedzofe, to a point that is 785m above seal level. Then we drive off the highlands through Ho, the Volta regional capital and return to Accra, hopefully before 6PM.
