The North Tongu District is a district of Ghana in the Volta Region. It was first established in 1989 as the Adidome District. The name was later changed as people pushed for a more unifying name for the district.[1]

Boundaries

The district's northern neighbour is the Ho Municipal District and the Akatsi District to the east. The South Tongu District is to the south east. To the west is the Asuogyaman District located in the Eastern Region of Ghana. The Dangme East and the Dangme West Districts in the Greater Accra Region are the district's south eastern neighbours.[1]

The vegetation lies in the Tropical Savannah Grassland zone. The Volta River cuts the district into two halves from north to south.[1]
