The Nimba Range is a mountain ridge right where the borders of Liberia, Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire congregate. The range is also the highest point of all three countries, which Liberians living in the mountain range's vicinity will inevitably boast loud and proudly. They've even convinced the Lonely Planet. The only problem is that "Mount Nimba" refers to the entire range. Mount Nuon-Fa, the single Liberian peak, is either 1,362 m or 1,151 m high, depending on sources. Thus making it Liberia's second-highest peak after Mount Wuteve (1,440 m) in the north. Whether you dare to tell the locals, that's up to you – we didn't. Geographical bickering aside, the peak still makes a splendid outing; a full day's hike through pristine forest from the mining town Yekepa. Alternatively, approach the peak via the mining operation's roads. It's possible to drive almost all the way to the top with a 4x4. And try not to visit during the rainy season were the supposedly fantastic views out over Guinea, Côte d’Ivoire and the higher peaks of Mount Nimba will be obscured by clouds.
