Videos: Trekking in Region of Man, Côte d’Ivoire


Man is a city situated in western Côte d'Ivoire. Man is part of Montagnes District and is an important market town lying between mountains, including Mount Toura and Mount Tonkoui (the two highest in Côte d'Ivoire), and La Dent de Man (the tooth of Man). 

The main attractions around Man are La Cascade waterfall, a large rocky outcrop which overlooks the town known as the La Dent de Man, and the monkey forest. La Cascade waterfall is situated at the west side of the town, and is surrounded by a bamboo forest, which is the habitat of many colorful dragonflies and a wide variety of butterflies. The monkey forest is a wooded area in which monkeys live; for a small fee tourists can persuade local residents to call the monkeys out of their forest habitat.

Since few years, Man and its region have become a more popular destination for hikers and rock climbers, according to Lonely Planet. This is another reason why we consider Côte d'Ivoire is an emerging destination for adventure travels activities in Africa. We present a video of five British climbers who visited this region for rock climbing in January 2019.
