This capital (pop. 273,000) of the Fouta Djallon mountain region was an ancient stronghold of the Fulani. Though Labe (pronounced LAW-bay) itself has little to recommend it, the drive north from Mamouto to Labe is really worth the effort—this is one case where the journey is more impressive than the destination. The nearby Chutes de Sala waterfalls are a popular day trip. 160 mi/260 km northeast of Conakry.
