The Tourist Attractions of Palime:
As a nation, the official language in Togo is French and that should be fine for any communication in Palime. Religion and culture is very diverse, and there are no particular restrictions you need to be aware of as a visitor.
Though they are not large, the K’Pime waterfalls are quite lovely and are one of the better known natural sights near Palime.
The 100-year old German Church is easy to spot as one of the taller buildings in the city. It’s a white building with terra cotta trim and roofing, with a single tall bell tower.
The market in Palime is a busy and very crowded place. Vendors have their goods laid out on the ground, or under simple metal-roofed stands. You won’t find a huge selection of souvenir-type products, but there are plenty of fruits, vegetables, and other dry food goods as well as clothing and fabrics.
Mount Agou is the highest point in Togo, and a fine place to do some hiking if you don’t mind a little hard work and elevation (the peak is at 990m). There are some trails up the mountain, though it is not an official or maintained park by any means. The villagers in Agou are usually happy to help you find the trails that start nearby. One of the main roads out of Palime to the south-east will take you to Agou.
Like Mount Agou, the local forests are not officially protected areas so you will not find any tourist facilities or maintained trails. But if you want to get off the beaten path and see some Togo countryside, this is where you should head.
