    The tour was very immersive as we started the tour in a rural village, near the Mount Kloto. On the way, we could appreciate nice views of Kpalime, this green, and wonderful region. In the village, I was happy to learn more about the biodiversity, especially species using in the art (plants for red, orange, green color). We met a nice artist, painting with these species, 100% eco-friendly! Then we hiked until Mount Kloto. The guide was very friendly, talk active, warm, and welcoming. He knew what he was talking about, very serious, and attractive speech. All the staff is very professional and well organized (time, transport, visits, knowledge...). I can't wait to go there as soon as I come back to Togo.
