Travel to Mont Agou Togo Kpalime, Togo Monday, April 16, 2007
I am hoping to leave around 9:00 am today for Mont Ago uor Mountain Agou, or maybe Mount Ago.
Mount Agou (Pic Baumann) 986 meters of 3,235 feet high, this is claimed to be the highest point in Togo.
This is a short mountain in the world of mountains, more of a foothill, yet appears very high in comparison to the rest of Togo and even West Africa that is main a flat lands.
I was hoping the altitude of the Kpalime area would dramatically cool this area of Togo, while cooler than Lome at the sea level, not dramatically cooler. The Togo border town of Kametonou, was dramatically cooler at night, and was some of the best sleeping so far in Togo, and the room had no fan.
The hope is to take the road to the top of this small Mount Agou and find a Chambre de Passage at the top, get a roof top view of Togo, while living cheap. I semi-doubt this, as normally people do not go live at the top of mountains as the farm land is bad.
