You are welcome to Elak Oku the parish that is found at the slopes of Mount Oku the second highest mountain in Cameroon. The Kilum mountain forest as it is called here provides the population with white honey that is valued all over the Cameroon and abroad. The parish has thirty mission stations as of now and some still to come up with three Eucharistic centers ( Elak, Mbam and Ibal ). The terrain of the parish is rough. One either descends or ascents. Parish has a vibrant youth group and the future of the church here is bright. The youth group is fully engaged in bee keeping.
