Wli Waterfalls has two distinct falls. Above is a view of the bottom falls whick is the highest of the two. On the left is a view of the upper falls. To get to the upper falls people must climb a semi-tretorous cliff, however for those able to do it the experience is worth the risk.

Wli Waterfalls cascades from a height of 60-80 meters, and is the highest falls in West Africa. The hills mark the border between Ghana and neighboring Togo. A walk through the forest of the Agumatsa wildlife sanctuary offers a chance to see a large colony of fruit bats, butterflies, birds, monkeys and baboons. To get there one has to walk through the Rain Forest on a small footpath crossing 9 smaller streams in the process.

Hunting of bats is now regulated by the communities.

A large colony of bats can be seen clinging to the cliffs and flying in the sky. The ecotour project is working with local communities to preserve the area, and limit the hunting of these rare bats. The money from the ecotourism project provides jobs for many of the hunters offering an alternative means of income to maintain their livelihood. At the same time the project gives the local community the incentive to preserve and enforce rules that protect the wildlife and natural environment.
