Mont Niénokoué, Ivory Coast
In the heart of Tai National Park rises a mountain, offering an amazing view for visitors over the beautiful canopy of a primary tropical rainforest.
The Mount Niénokoué is 396 m high and located about ten kilometers from the Ecotel at Djouroutou. The way up can be steep but easy enough to climb. You need about an hour and a half to reach the summit and you should be in good physical condition to succeed.
This mountain is sacred for the Patokola people and is the place of adoration rituals in December each year.
