The Mountain is about the highest point in West Africa rising to an altitude of 1752m. Endemic or near-endemic flora and fauna surround it. The mountain cuts across Guinea, Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia, supporting an exceptional variety of forest and savannah habitats and biodiversity. The Liberian side, which is left out by the UNESCO from the mountain’s status as a World Heritage Site, contains some of the world’s highest-grade iron ore. Tourists on this site will see wildlife including chimpanzees and other wild animals of Africa.
