TOUR  DESCRIPTION

This tour essentially for sport purpose is going to take us to one of the mountains in the ‘’City of Seven Hills’’ Yaounde, the Mount Eloundem of 1 159metres of attitude. You shall trek from the Combined Military War Academy (Ecole de guerre) through the Eloundem village where a few exercises shall be done to relax the muscles and practical hiking counsels given such as:

  • Lying down and stretching the legs in case of a muscle cram,
  • Sleeping on the ground, where air is lighter in case of difficulty in breathing,
  • Using your respiratory sprays for persons with respiratory defects,
  • Hiking slowly and in straight line like the ants,
  • High sense of solidarity, sportsmanship and team spirit required.

You shall now start the trekking up the mountain using the narrow path in straight line like the ants by passing the first portion of its slope that is seriously affected by human occupation. Deforestation for farming and construction of human settlement have been carried out for a height of up to 700 metres of attitude.

The intensity of human actions gradually reduces with increasing attitudes as we pass the settlements, farmlands, into the grasslands.

Further hiking for about 40 minutes will take us from the grassland into the woodland that is basically less affected by deforestation.

Hiking this woodland for about 25 minutes, we shall enter the next vegetation type which is a steep rugged terrain made up mainly of rocks with some spotted trees and bananas. Traversing this rugged terrain, the swiftest hikers can use 30 minutes to reach the summit, using approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes from the foot. Here, you can take photographs with a picturesque view of the city of Yaounde as far as your eyes can see and realised that you are in the clouds but your feet are on the ground.
