You can see Mount Adaklu from ervery place around Ho. This lonley Rock is located behind the town. There are a lot of stories about this mystical mountain.
Early in the morning my friend Coco and I took a car to Adaklu - Helekpe, the village at the foot of the mountain. There is a hiking center, where we had to wait for a guide. Without a guide it is not allowed to climb the mountain, because there are no signs along the footpath. The guides also take care about the path. Our guide took slippers, a bottle of water and a knife and we started walking up. You sweat a lot, because of the wet air. So you need enough to drink. The ground was very slippery and steep, so I was happy about that I had better shoes than the guide. The view down to Ho and the green area around was great. I really enjoyed the atmosphere in the forest. The plants were fascinating and I heard a lot of foreign noises. Coco and I set up a new record. Within one hour we reached the top. Unfortunately some clouds were around the mountain and we couldn't see as far.
Back in the village we bought a lot of water and took a taxi back to Ho. We were satisfied and happy about the great trip!
