The pont de lianes (vine bridge) adds to the excitement of getting to La Cascade

Like a number of West Africa countries, the Ivory Coast (Côte D’Ivoire) has seen its share of political upheaval and civil war over recent years. While the country is more famous for its towerering basilica (arguably the world’s largest) which rivals St Peter’s in the Vatican, its western border features the unusually named town of Man which hides among a suite of craggy mountains (the area is called Dix Huit Montagnes or 18 Mountains Region), verdant bamboo forest and coffee plantations.

A path carves through the bamboo forest just west of town over ominous Pont de Lianes (Vine Bridge). Littered with colourful dragonflies and butterflies joyously lapping at the intoxicating cool air, the path leads to the simply named and elegant La Cascade which softly tumbles down the layered rock carpeted in velvety green moss – the cool waters bringing refreshment on humid warm days.

Welcome to Travel Wonders
My name is Mark and I’m a keen traveller. In fact, over the last 25 years, I’ve travelled to every continent and over 80 countries. This blog is about the most memorable destinations – the places I regard as the travel wonders of the world. I’m also a keen photographer, and have taken nearly all the photos you’ll see. During my travels, I’ve met some incredible people, seen inspiring places, viewed extraordinary wildlife and scenery and had some amazing experiences, and I’m writing these stories not only to entertain but primarily to inspire others to discover their own travel wonders.
