Away from the hassle and bustle of urban life, tucked away in the quietness of the mountains that form part of the Akwapim-Togo ranges is nestled under the foot of Afadjato, the highest mountain in Ghana, the beautiful touristic village of Liati Wote. Wote is a haven for a getaway any time all year round.
By the generous gift of nature Liati Wote remains the home of Afadjato and the beautiful, exotic and perennial Tagbo Falls – proud owners of two wonderful tourist attractions. Wote by its strategic location offers her visitors a double satisfaction if only they are willing to avail themselves of the challenge to conquer Afadjato…

Ghana Mountaineers organizes regular hikes and climbs in the area around Liati Wote and we always enjoy being guests in the Tagbo Lodge and the Community Guest House of Liati Wote. The tranquillity and peace in the village together with the superb hospitality of everybody makes it an ideal base for resting after a long hike and for planning the next adventure. Not to mention the clean air and the great food prepared with fresh ingredients in the Lodge and the guest house. Liati Wote prides itself of the cleanliness of the streets and surroundings and you will immediately notice that the people in the village really take this serious. Trash is hard to be found, even on the frequently visited trails up Mount Afadzato or the Tagbo Falls. The guides in the tourist office are friendly and know their way around in the mountains and the forest. You can hire them for a range of activities and adventures and the area around Liati Wote offers everything from a simple, short hike through the forest to multi day hikes with overnight camping and spectacular climbs and rappel routes. Liati Wote is our preferred base for any activities up in the Volta Region and we will be there many more times.
"Liati Wote is one of the best Eco-tour sites in Ghana. The community is clean and the people are friendly. There is a conscious awareness and understanding of visitor reception and every household or individual you approach demonstrates a high sense of customer care. The Tour Guides are hardworking and knowledgeable. The simple but descent guest houses serve the purpose of eco friendly tourism. This is a place I will recommend to any tourist. Oops, there is always the ever popular social drink - palm-wine in abundance".
“The first time we got to know the village Liati Wote was in 2017/2018 when we stayed there for 2 and a half months to do some work in the Tagbo Falls Lodge. It was our first stay in West Africa and we were overwhelmed with new impressions. In Liati Wote, a traditional African community, we met the chief, we got to know many inhabitants, we helped the school children on the national cleaning days, we had a regular drink in Kofi’s bar, we enjoyed the comfortable Tagbo Falls Lodge and the delicious food prepared by the manager and cook Philo. Of course we also visited the refreshing Tagbo Falls, climbed Mount Afadjato (beautiful spots in this tropical landscape) and visited other sites in the surroundings of Liati Wote. During this first visit Liati Wote stole our harts and before we left we had gotten involved in a cleaning/plastic recycling project, to get Liati Wote a clean village (again). Before we left to go back to Europe, Rob was made sanitation chief, during an impressive celebration. In the beginning of 2019 and the beginning of 2020, we came back to Liati Wote to continue our support for the cleaning project and we were impressed with the work that had been done by the locals. So many motivated inhabitants are making an effort to keep the place clean: picking up plastic waste along the trails, installing waste bins, collecting and storing the plastic and teaching the school children about keeping the environment clean. Beautiful wall paintings about cleaning and waste picking were made by the local artist Christoph Gavi. We are very proud of the kind inhabitants of this lovely village and we hope to return in the near future”
The people of Liati Wote, led by the chief Togbe Kodadza V, started a community-based ecotourism project in the 1980s.
