Historical background of the people of Liati Wote
Away from the bustle and hassle of urban life nestled under the foot of Afadjato, the highest mountain in Ghana, is found the beautiful touristic village of Liati Wote. It is located in the Afadzato South District in the Volta Region of Ghana. It is about 18km South-east of Hohoe the nearest commercial town. Until the creation of the Afadzato South District in 2012, Liati Wote has been part of the Hohoe District. The citizens of Liati Wote fondly refer to their village as “The White City” because of the white sand all over the village; but this was before the red laterite was spread over a long stretch in the construction of a feeder road to link with the other villages. And this was before the people were forced to start keeping green grasses to protect their houses from being destroyed due to the excessive erosion caused by rain over the years.
