ATTRACTIONS in Cameroon
The West Region, with its superb natural attributes, is often compared with Auvergne in France. It is an undulating region traversed by beautiful rivers interspersed with waterfalls. It offers a series of rounded mountains, a legacy of past volcanoes. The climate is temperate here and certain areas, such as the Dschang meteorological station, register average annual temperatures of 20°C.
The West Region is a country of traditions and culture and is characterised by a profuse craft industry, expressed in numerous ways: pipes, clay utensils, statues and masks in copper, stools decorated in pearls and bamiléké dancers in beautiful costumes. Foumban is the centre of Cameroon’s craft industry.
