Water Heights Hotel is located near some of
Ghana's finest tourist destinations - namely,
Wli Waterfall, Afadzato Mountain, Tafi Atome
Likpe Todome Caves, Wli Ostrich Farm among
Bike rides or transportation (on request)
are arranged by Water Heights Hotel for guests
visiting the following destinations.
Wli Waterfall is located in the Agumatsa
Wildlife sanctuary, which is also home for
hundreds of fruit bats, birds and some monkeys.
It is a recreational place for all who want
to derive relaxation from nature. The Wli
falls is a perennial flowing water from
a height of about 400 metres. It is the
highest waterfall in West Africa: and takes
only about 45 minutes leisure walk (level
road) from Water Heights Hotel to the Lower-Fall.
The Upper-Fall - which requires climbing
- takes another 30minutes to reach.
It will interest curious visitors to know
that apart from the main (popular) Wli Waterfall,
there is another falls upstream Agumatsa
river, up the mountains – we refer
to as the Upper-fall for more adventurous
sightseers. The Upper-fall, takes about
an hour’s walk from the main falls,
and offers another wonder of nature. It
is advisable for first time visitors to
first visit the main Waterfall. Unlike the
main Lower-fall, a 30-minute mountain climbing
is required to reach the Upper-fall.
THE LOOP: A roundtrip hike
along the Agumatsa mountain ridge and forest
to get to the Upper and Lower Falls. This
route (which is innovated by Water Heights)
allows visitors to view both falls (Upper
and Lower) at a go. It requires 6 hours
of hiking, sightseeing as well as taking
dips in the two waterfalls. On clear days,
visitors are able to view the Volta lake
and also villages across the Togo border.
This hike requires carrying snacks and water.
Packed snacks are provided on request from

Afadzato is the highest mountain in Ghana.
Its summit stands at 2,905 feet. A visit to
mount Afadzato will take about 15 minutes
drive from Wli Water Heights. Afadjato is
located between Liate Wote and Gbledi communities
and can be climbed/reached from either towns.
Climbing of mountain Afadzato to its highest
peak takes about 40 minutes. An added attraction
at the foot of the mountain are varied and
rare species of butterflies that can be discovered.
At the peak, one can have a bird’s eye
view of the Volta Lake.
Tafi Atome, is a beautiful and quiet village
surrounded by thick forest with luxuriant
vegetation where sacred and rare species of
Mona Monkeys dwell. A trip into the forest
with a guide gives visitors the opportunity
to see these real endangered species in their
natural habitat. The villagers live virtually
with these “sacred” neighbours
– Mona Monkeys. Tafi-Atome is 40 minutes
drive from Wli Water Heights going south along
Four ancient caves and 2 vertical tunnels
are located in Likpe Todome, just about 10
minutes drive from Wli Water Heights. The
caves, some with narrow entrances, scrap face

outskirt of Wli, which is only a walking
