The road is unpaved and after rains the road is totally impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle. No car can go through this road during rain season...Only motorbikes can go. The area is dangerous with conflicts between Cameroon's military and armed separatists.
Located within the Ejagham Forest Reserve, the road is part of the main N 6 road. It’s 65km (40.38 miles) long running east-west from Mamfe (also spelled Mamfé), the capital of Manyu, a division of the Southwest Region, and Ekok, on the border with Nigeria.
