Photographer's Note

This is the Mchirgue peak, one of the most outstanding places at sunset, Extreme-North of Cameroon along the Nigerian border. The area is roughly 1100m high and this peak reaches 1224m.

People from this area are Kapsiki named after the mountains around. There are about 25 Kapsiki villages with a common local language on this side of the border. Most of them used to be animists but a significant part was turned into catholic religion now.

One of the funny thing to experiment in this village is to meet the Crab sorcerer who can teach you few things about your future if you ask him a question and provide him with the appropriate tip.

The place is quite easy to find but the road up to Rhumsiki is quite exhausting. It takes roughly 2h30 of a bumpy, rocky track to get there.

This house is one of the many in the larger valley delimiting the border between Nigeria and Cameroon. People here are living from agriculture and from little tools they make for people around.
