Streetview of Korhogo with the main mosque in the background.

Korhogo is a city in the northern parts of the Côte d'Ivoire, also known as the Northern Savanna. With an estimated 225,000 inhabitants (and growing rapidly), it's the fifth city in the country.


The city is served by its own airport, Korhogo airport (IATA: HGO), although only used for domestic flights by Air Ivoire. There are bus connections operated by different companies to several other Ivory Coast destinations, and bush taxis run to surrounding villages.


The two main sights are the Péléforo Gbon Coulibaly Regional Museum and the woodcarver's quarter, where wood sculptors can be seen at work all around. The Mosquée de Korhogo, the city's main mosque, sits in the centre of town and serves as a real landmark.
