The vegetation of the area also varies with the ecological sub zones. The high altitude parts are characterized by sparsely wooden savannah whereas tall grass species grow in the lowlands around the area of transition between the two main sub ecological zones. Only small patches of natural forests are found especially along the valleys of the mountainous zones and in the plain. Much of the natural vegetation in Ndu, Talla and Wowo villages has been replaced with eucalyptus plantations. In fact, the great modification that has been effected on the natural vegetation of the area is attributed to human activities like farming, grazing and construction works.

There are potential touristic sites within the municipality but not yet harnessed. Nothing has been intentionally done to promote tourism in the area. However, business tourism is common, with tens of thousands of businessmen visiting the main markets (Ndu, Ntumbaw and Ntaba) weekly. 

The natural touristic sites within the municipality are:

  • Small beautiful waterfalls (Sinna, Ntumbaw, Wowo, Taku, and the Ndu tea area)
  • Caves (Sop, Sinna, Njirong, Njimnkang, Luh and Taku). These caves are thought to have acted as natural shelters to the people of old because of the presence of soot and broken pots.
  • The Mbiyeh-Mbibi Community Forest which harbours birds with special features like the Bannerman’s Turaco from which the red feather worn by the traditional title holders of the North West Region.
  • The tea fields of the Ndu Tea Plantation
  • Peculiar carvings and handicrafts at Mbibi and Taku
  • The chief’s palaces with historical articles and traditional bamboo and thatched houses
  • Cultural manifestations such as dead celebrations with a wide range of musical dances, and masquerade displays (Njuh, Nfuh, Mnkung, Nkoh, Wanmabu…etc)
