Early in the morning of the May 1 holiday, at 07.00, a team of unapologetic mountaineering adventurers will leave the Accra Mall on a 4-hour drive to the Hohoe Plains, and to a village at the foot of the ranges named Nyangbo Kume. That team will move up a 650m mountain terrain to the Village of Dzogbefeme. The hike ascends from a 50m plain to that elevation in less than two or three hours, and for thrice the trouble because we’ll have our food, water, tents and other adventure gear strapped onto our backs. We’ll spend the night on Expedition Plateau, a spot that offers a spectacular view of the Amedzofe and Gemi mountains.
After breakfast the next day, adventurers will explore all of nature’s bounties in and around Dzogbefeme. This includes waterfalls and caves, and a visit to the Tafi Atome Monkey Sanctuary.
On Sunday, May 3, the final leg of the assault begins to Mt Gemi’s cross at Amedzofe, to a point that is 800m above seal level, and then complete the adventure with a visit to the beautiful Ote falls. We will then drive off the highlands through Ho, the Volta regional capital.
