  • Description Edit •  Add / Share you knowledge with mates

    Cameroon Mountains - the region located along the Cameroon line and consists of mountain ranges and volcanoes. Cameroonian Highlands includes several dormant volcanoes, including Manengouba, Bamboutu and the Oku Massif Mount. In the Gulf of Guinea, the Cameroon line consists of six offshore volcanic swells that have formed islands or seamounts. On the mainland, the line starts with Mount Cameroon and extends northeast in a range known as the Western High Plateau. East of Oku there are further volcanic mountains in the Ngaoundere Plateau, some of which appear to have similar origins.
