The Mountain Paradise Lodge is the vision of private investors who are desirous to use tourism to enhance economic development and restore the ecological integrity of the AVATIME Hills portion of the Weto range for Sustainable Development. In view of this vision, FRIENDS OF GEMI (FOG) was formed as an environmental Non –Governmental Organization. FOG’s goal is to develop a first-class backcountry resort, nestled in the pristine wilderness of the Avatime Hills in the Volta Region of Ghana; where clouds billow from nowhere and cut across the face of mountains and the valleys, leaving guests bewildered in wonderment. The resort, MOUNTAIN PARADISE LODGE, is to lead the new trend in tourism called Nature& Adventure Travel; created for the traveler who wants more than the run-of- the-mill vacation.
The Lodge has been set up and running for the past thirteen years. We offer such activities as guided tours, mountaineering, rock climbing, hiking, abseiling and mountain biking. The menu from our kitchen is inspired by our principle of “zero-inclusion” of artificial ingredients and condiments; making us the ONLY ORGANIC restaurant in this vicinity.
Our management team comprises individuals who have a very good background and experience in hospitality management, catering, management, finance and marketing.
INTEGRATING HIGH–END ACTIVITIES TO ENHANCE THE TOURISM POTENTIAL OF THE MOUNTAIN PARADISE LODGE
It is the strategy of Mountain Paradise to give perception of higher value than its competitors through unparalleled highest quality service and superb recreational opportunities. Principal among these recreational activities are HIKING, TREKKING, MOUNTAIN BIKING, CLIMBING, ABSEILING, SWIMMING, CAMPING etc.
The topography supports ZIPLINE or TRAMCARS; activities that will haul in bus loads of people from all over the country and the subregion, being a novelty. No cost analysis has been done but we have a competent management team on hand.
We anticipate a strong symbiotic community collaboration in order to empower the local economy for the enhancement of livelihood.
