About 328 km long, the main road is now enti- rely asphalted.

Trunk Road N° 11
Bamenda - Bambui - Bafut - Wum
Out of a 430-km route, a few part of the road, 37.60 km, is asphalted. From Bamenda to Wum, it goes through two cliffs, which compli- cate traffic during the rainy season. The cliffs are found between Bafut and the crossing of the same river twice: Mezam and Mentchum, depending of the Division in which you are found.
