Mount Afadja, known in the Ewe language as Afadjoto, is the highest mountain in Ghana. The summit of this peak is located near the border with Togo, in the Volta Region of Ghana, close to the village of Liati Wote in Afadzato Southern District. Part of the Agumatsa sub-range of the West African Mountains, its summit is 885 meters (2,904 ft) above sea level.
“Afadja” is the name of the mountain whereas the suffix “-to” in the Ewe language means mountain, therefore it is called “Afadja-to” by the Ewe people of Ghana and Togo. The correct name would be “Mount Afadja”, as “Mount Afadjato” would be a repetition of the word “mountain”. Mount Afadja is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the Volta Region of Ghana, welcoming thousands of visitors from around the globe annually.
