The West Region, with its richly endowed natural attributes, is often compared with the Auvergne region of France. It is an undulating region traversed by beautiful rivers interspersed with waterfalls. It offers a series of rounded mountains, a heritage left by extinct volcanoes.
The climate here is temperate and certain areas, such as the Dschang meteorological station, register average annual temperatures of 20°C.
The West Region is a land of traditions and culture and is characterized by a richness of its craftsmanship, 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 center of Cameroon’s craft industry.
