Welcome to The Ring Road
The 367km Ring Road runs a circle around the Grassfields, and if it were in better shape it'd be one of Cameroon's great scenic drives. As it is, get your butt ready for some bumpy, red-earth roads. The pay-off? Mountains dolloped with lakes, cattle loping into the hills and one of the greatest concentrations of fondoms (traditional kingdoms) in Cameroon.
It's worth considering, too, the more manageable small Ring Road route, linking Bamenda, Bafut, Wum, Weh, Fundong, Belo and Bambui. This will take one to two days.
