Hikers should not miss out on a 1.5-kilometer hiking route around the Akan Lake Eco-Museum Center. The highlight of this trek is the “Bokke,” a mud volcano where underground gases and water vapor push hot mud to the surface. Walkers will be treated to the Bokke about 15 minutes from the entrance. Also noteworthy are the various plants of Akan, including the particularly beautiful skunk cabbage that blooms during Golden Week.
