Mount Afadja, known in the Ewe language as Afadjoto, is the highest mountain in Ghana. The summit of this peak is located on the border with Togo, in the Volta Region of Ghana, about midway between the villages of Gblede in Hohoe Municipal District and Apédomé in Kloto Prefecture in Togo. It is about 178 kilometers (111 mi) northeast of Accra, and 178 kilometers (111 mi) northwest of Lomé. Part of the Agumatsa sub-range of the West Africa Mountains, its summit is 885 metres (2,904 ft) above sea level. The summit of Mount Aduadu (746 metres (2,448 ft)) lies 3.5 kilometers (2 mi) to the east of Mount Afadja.

“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.

When the Ewe people migrated to the area and saw the mountain it looked like the mound in which water yam is planted, water yam being called “Avadze” in Ewe. Moreover, there were some creeping plants on the mountain that resembled the water yam plant; they therefore called it “Avadze-to”. Today the word has been palatalized into “Afadjato”
