Atwea Mountains: The tourist site Ghanaians visit for religious reasons

Atwea Mountain is located in Atwea in the Sekyere Central District of the Ashanti region and admittedly one of the most famous mountains in Ghana for religious reasons.

The Atwea mountain is a unique mountain, famous for its attraction of Christian pilgrims, who regularly visit the township of Atwea in a bid to ascend to the peak of the mountain to hold prayers and conventions.

According to historians, the act began so many decades ago when one local Methodist pastor in Atwea named Abraham Osei-Assibey climb the Atwea Bour (Atwea Stone) to go and pray to the Lord.

After spending a few days up on the mountain praying, he returns to the town and regularly took his fellowship to the mountain top to go and pray with him and when the news went viral Christains bought into the idea.
