AFLABO WATERFALL HISTORY

The Aflabo waterfall is in the Ewe range of mountains, specifically at Akpadafe. The waterfall was first discovered in the 17th century by our ancestors, who migrated from Notsie in the Republic of Togo under the rule of Agorkoli through Yokele to Blemado where the falls takes its source from.

When our ancestors left Blemado, they came to Todome where they stayed for some time. They eventually moved to Afedome, which is now known as Leklebi Agbesia.

Our ancestors were hunters who used arrows and bows instead of guns. One day after a heavy down pour a hunter went in search for an animal for the days meal, fortunately he heard a loud noise (hooooooo) thinking it was an antelope.  He followed the sound and found water falling from the mountain to a big pool.

He went back to the village and narrated what he saw to the people who followed him to the waterfall for them to witness it themselves. When they arrived, they indeed saw water falling beyond the mountain into a pool. 

In the Ewe language they say (Tsi la Fla to la boooo), which translates to “it goes beyond the mountain.” This is where the name Aflabo comes from.

The Aflabo waterfall has been visited by the British, Americans, and the Germans since the mid 20th century. Prior to the 1990s, the waterfall did not appear on camera from tourists. Now you can have a full picture or video of the waterfall without worry as our fathers perform rituals to pacify the Gods.

The Aflabo waterfall markets itself and can be seen from:

  • Hohoe

  • Accra Road

  • Kpelezo to Ve Agbome

  • and from Golokwati to Liati.

AFLABO WATERFALL POOL

Not only do we have some of the best natural views at the Aflabo waterfall, we also have a refreshing mountain swimming pool with water deep as 1.5 meters (5ft) deep. After your hike and before descending back to Leklebi Agbesia, enjoy a refreshing swim to cool off.

Fact: When the waterfall was discovered, there were two natural pools that could be enjoyed by the community. After a large boulder fell from the mountain in the early 1990’s, the larger upper pool was destroyed leaving one lower pool place.
