Welcome to Mt Cameroon

Most hikes to the top of West Africa's highest peak take two or three days, but it's no stroll in the park. The difficulty stems not only from its height (4095m), but from the fact that you start from near sea level, making a big change in altitude in a relatively short distance.

A popular ascent is a two-night, three-day hike via the Mann Spring route and descending via the Guinness Route. November to April is the main climbing season, and although it's possible to climb the mountain year-round, you won't get much in the way of views during the rainy season. Warm clothes and waterproofs are a must.
