Mbepit Massif, located in the central part of the continental Cameroon Volcanic Line, is characterised by several geomorphosites of volcanic origin. Eight geomorphosites, namely South Rhyolitic Protrusion, South Volcano, North Rhyolitic Needle, NW cone, North Volcano, Dome-casting, Tam-chi Depression and Maar Nfou, have been selected in this structure based to their scientific and additional values. Majority of these geomorphosites have a relatively high scientific value (0.79), due to their integrity, representativeness and rarity. Regarding additional values, they have high ecological and aesthetic values, but moderate cultural value. Despite all these assets, the Mbepit Massif geomorphosites are not at the centre of any local geotourism development project. This lack of interest in geotourism explains the absence of tourist facilities in most of the sites and the low consideration of their educational interest. To raise local geotourism offer, it is imperative to draw the attention of competent authorities and the local population to the importance of geomorphological heritage; popularise geomorphosites through field trips, leaflets, websites, conferences and exhibitions; and establish a sustainable management policy for the selected geomorphological units. This initiative will create awareness and help to protect the sustainable touristic potential of the geological heritage of the Mbepit Massif.
