Man, the “City of 18 Mountains”

In the west of Ivory Coast, surrounded by majestic reliefs, Man promises you magical adventures in the heart of nature.

For another change of scenery, simply travel to the western part of Ivory Coast, where the landscapes are radically different from those of the south. In particular, head for the city of Man, the capital of the Tonkpi region, which is entirely dominated by mountains and is a delight for outdoor activity enthusiasts. With this city of 150,000 inhabitants as a starting point, there are countless natural sites within reach of your walking poles.

In the heart of the forest, which is home to hundreds of rare species of butterflies and dragonflies, impressive liana bridges help you to cross awe-inspiring waterfalls. Meet the monkeys of the sacred forest of Gbêpleu, who will mind their own business, barely noticing your presence.

If you have a head for heights, you should take at least half a day to explore the Dent de Man. To reach the summit, you will need to climb a few small rocks, which will delight the younger members of your party. Once you've made it to the top, you will be rewarded with an incredible view of the city of Man nestled in the valley below, as well as the surrounding mountains, whose silhouettes gradually reveal themselves in the mist.
