Wli waterfalls in Ghana

Wli waterfalls has two distinct falls. Below are views of the bottom falls which is the highest of the two. To get to the upper falls people must climb a semi-tretorous cliff, however for those able to do it the experience is worth the risk. Cascading from a height of about 60m, it is the highest waterfall in Ghana and West Africa thus making it a favorite tourist attraction. The hills mark the border between Ghana and neighboring Togo.

Natural environment. A walk through the forest of the Agumatsa wildlife sanctuary offers a chance to see a large colony of fruit bats, butterflies, birds, monkeys and baboons. To get there one has to walk through the rain forest on a small footpath crossing 9 smaller streams in the process. A large colony of bats can be seen clinging to the cliffs and flying in the sky. The ecotour project is working with local communities to preserve the area, and limit the hunting of these rare bats. The money from the ecotourism project provides jobs for many of the hunters offering an alternative means of income to maintain their livelihood. At the same time the project gives the local community the incentive to preserve and enforce rules that protect the wildlife and natural environment.

The journey from Accra to the Volta Region is about 2 hours on road and it takes you through the industrial city of Tema and across the captivating Adomi Bridge which lies over the Volta River. Wli is located in the Hohoe district of the region. The journey to the falls is a very interesting one as the Wli waterfalls is located within the tropical rainforest of the region.

Accommodation for tourist is available and affordable. There is access to basic amenities like water, electricity and internet services.
