MAN { The city of Eighteen Mountains}

I took a 10 hours bus ride trip to Man to go chase waterfall.

Man is known for the beautiful le cascade the Man (waterfall) and the Mountains. It’s the most mountainous city in Cote D’Ivoire.. And if you know me well, you will know hiking and waterfall is my absolute travel weakness.

Unfortunately for me, the waterfall didn’t fall. It was a sad experience traveling that far only to realize it’s a seasonal waterfall and it best pour only during the rainy season. places to visit;

  • Le cascade the man waterfall ( best visit during rain season)
  • The monkey forest ( totally worth it)
  • Hike the Mount Toukpi ( totally worth the view)
