The Alantika Mountains are located west of Poli and north of the Faro reserve all in the North province. The region is a mountainous one with the highest point at 1865 m above seas level. It is inhabited by the Koma tribe, a primitive people which is a result of a mixing of pygmy men and Koma women. They have preserved their culture and traditions unchanged over a century. Women here use tree leaves to hide their sexual organs. Villages visited are Fygnole, Wangaï, librou, bimlerou Bas, Nabamalo, bimlerou Haut, Dini, Ouip , Singli, etc.
The nights are spent in tents erected in the local chief’s palaces in the mountains. Treks are scheduled everyday between 5 and 6 hours with the help of local guides and porters hired from the villages visited.
