Mount Afadjato is the highest mountain in Ghana, at an altitude of 880 m (2900ft). The mountain is located in the Agumatsa Range near the villages of Liati Wote and Gbledi, at the border with Togo. The nearby Aduadu is in fact the highest point in Ghana, but because of a small relative height (height difference between the base and the peak) is not considered a mountain.

According to, the name of the mountain derives from the Ewe word Avadzeto, meaning “at war with bush.” The name derives from the presence on the mountainside of a plant causing severe skin irritation.

The nearby Tagbo Falls and Wli Falls (the highest in West Africa) are also considered tourist attractions.
